Which implies they once were I suppose. Cole Porter era I guess.

A Very Special Episode this week, starring out-of-towner Megan at the board. No visit to Ann Arbor is complete without DJing at WCBN. I should hire touts to bring tourists down, charge admission and make some money off the deal. Megan reports the week’s highlight was “Kiss the Girl” into “Let’s Talk about Sex”. I have to admit, that was pretty good. Clearly Megan understands the whole campus radio gestalt.

I actually felt like the show went pretty well this week. No major screwups. Lots of music got turned up to 11 in the booth. I was particulary grooving on the Mike Doughty (who knew it was meant to be played so loud?), the Nina Simone, and playing the Mojo Nixon track off the Don Henley cover. Take that Don Henley. You’re out of the band. Sting too.
