I’m so totally psyched to have former Radio Valencia star DJ, Mikl Em of Can Haz DJ. Mikl, like myself, is a total music nerd. Once you get us started it’s hard for us to stop. And like me, he’s into every genre imaginable. The idea of doing a two hour show with him, though limiting, was impossible to pass up.
We made this a concept show. We open up with music we’re listening to now, followed by music that inspired us as we were children. There’s some teenage “angst” in there, as well as music from our college years, breakup songs, and road songs. We feature some musical heroes, female power, and finally a holiday treat for those so inclined. I think you’ll like our choices on the latter.
The banter is whimsical, and Mikl even shot video footage of us, live in the studio. We need to do this more than once a year.
As always, enjoy.
Song host is marked accordingly, by initials.
