So yeah, that was my not-valentines, station-move-day show. I feel good about it. I’m amazed how freaked out I was about fundraising last week, I had frequent sensations of relief today, which I traced each time to not having to think about money. I am, absolutely, useless with money. I may well be useless with music too, but I have a lot more fun with that uselessness.
Here’s the master list of TV station sign-offs.
Thanks to Carl Sagan for calling in from wherever pop-sci cosmologists go when they die. I guess he beat out Pascal’s wager. I asked him if there was actually a god, and he told me (very quick on the draw I thought), billions and billions. Damn. Turns out Dr. Sagan isn’t exactly a Hot Butter fan, more just concerned about them.
Was it just me or did the audio sound kind of funny today?
Dj name suggestions so far: Hugo-not. Stimsong (ouch, jesus). And this formidable list:
dj Voltaire the bastard
dj gas station oj
dj without a porpoise
dj free lunch
