Tonight on the show, I, once again, invited Ragi the Lawyer to come down. He has been on four times in the last six weeks. He came down last week, when I stayed home, sick. Thanks Ragi. Anyway, he came in tonight to talk about renter’s rights; especially in case of a fire. We actually took one call. Good for him!
Katy Bell came by, celebrating her birthday. Happy Birthday Katy! We had a KROB moment and then she was off again. If you’ve been to the Power Tool Drag Races, you know Katy as our Flag Girl. She also produced the Mark Growden benefit, which I MCd just over a week ago.
I’ve really been keen on this new format idea. The first hour is an interview, the second
is new music, the third is specialty genres, the fourth will toss you into dreamland, either calmly and sweetly, or kicking a screaming. You be the judge. I’d like your suggestions about music and genres for the third and fourth hours.
I love hosting a four hour show. Two hours is not nearly enough. I’ve been in radio for 20 years now, and I look at it as an art form. Taking two or more sources of sound and mixing them together, either end to end, or throughout; it’s the art of the segue.
Go here to download the show. I’m very pleased with the set starting with Sonic Reducer, by Rocket from the Tombs. Tell me what you think.
