Open Mike Night is the longest running local music program in Central Pennsylvania. Every Sunday Night at 10 pm, Michael Anthony Smith brings you the best in local and regional bands and solo performers.
The show airs on Sunday Nights, between 10 pm and Midnight.
Whenever possible, I have bands come on the show. I use the first hour for an interview segment, and if they feel like playing in the studio we'll play a few songs live. I ask bands that wish to appear on the show to send me material beforehand. I'd like to play your material leading up to the visit.
I see it in myself in the constant mental and emotional inventory that I take, to make sure I’m still sane, or to at the very least to at least to be sure that I am still in ownership of some strand of sanity.
I see it in countless social media proclamations that “You can’t handle half of what I’ve been through, so I make strange decisions”..
I ...see it everywhere I look, and pick up on it from everyone I come in contact with.
Maybe I’m over thinking some things. But maybe the problem is not that we ourselves are broken, but we are under the impression that everyone else is in perfect working order. We aren’t.
That may be where some of the some of the problems start.
We are all damaged goods.
We are all broken...
But it’s OK.
We might not be able to fix each other, but with the right amount of emotional duct tape, who knows what could happen?
