(yes, I think I played the same King Curtis song twice at the start. I was focusing too hard on making the rest of the show awesome.)

Whalebone wrapper longfellow ferret. That showing up on boingboing the same day I had an EAS test was too much to ignore.

My favourite calls were the guy who didn’t know the name of the band or the song or even really the genre, but cleared it up by singing the chorus to “Sundown” by Gordon Lightfoot, and the the gentlemen who self identified as older and wanted to hear the one that goes “Don’t, push, me, cause I’m on the edge…”.

Okay but seriously, what should my dj name be? The one that got the best response was dj Cellular Automata but that’s a bit complicated.

Your photos from your trip are amazing! Seriously stunning. What happend to your Feb 7th radio show?

Thanks about the photos. As for the feb 7th show, I had it most of the way posted, then I decided to just let it slide into obscurity. It was fundraiser week, and while I fully support the mission of WCBN and begged my heart out for people’s money, I’ve never been comfortable in any kind of sales. The whole thing makes me tense, and I’m glad to get back to just thinking about music.
