Where were you when it happened? Where did you hear the news? Who were you with? What were you doing at the time? How did you feel upon initially experiencing this? Who did you tell first? How did you tell them? What was their reaction?

All this and more in my most recent show.

Such a fabulous selection of punk, funk and junk for your earholes to enjoy.

I’m taking next Monday off to go see Ty Segall perform in Berkeley. There will be a Hell’s Kitchen Radio classic scheduled, but you may hear another Radio Valencia DJ taking the controls for the night.

It’s another one of those nights where I just have to do a deeper dive into my cast library of music. There’s something old, something new, something ripped off, something I don’t think I’ve ever actually listened to before.

That’s fair, isn’t it?

Should a DJ give a listen to EVERYTHING before they play it for you? How much preparation do you require from your DJ? How OCD are you, anyway?

I used to know a DJ at a former station I was at who would spend hours writing out his playlist. We hosted four-hour shows at this particular station. I would watch him work meticulously on his playlist. Draft after draft. He would write down songs/artists, and then scratch some out and and fill it in with another. I would tune in from time to time and could really appreciate the effort, but it also felt a little stiff. Maybe it was his mic breaks, but it never felt that authentic to me.

More often than not I’m inspired by the events leading up to my show, and I pull my music a few hours beforehand based on this. I enjoy playing new music more often than not, but I also love peppering some older “library” tracks in for good measure. Some shows, like the one from two weeks ago, take on a life of their own, and I get inspired during the show itself. Thank goodness I bring along my trusty external HD with 100GB of music.

Enjoy.

This apparently has become an annual event. If you listen to my show on a regular basis (of course you do!), then you often hear a cover tune or three. There are just too many quality versions to share with you. It’s easy with a music collection like mine to play hours and hours of covers. The real test is to find two hours worth to make it worth your while to listen.

I’ve been inspired to host this show for a few weeks now, but I still didn’t get through my long list I had prepared for you. Tune in next Monday night and you may get a few extra treats, including a Pink Floyd cover that will knock you into the next galaxy.

In the meantime enjoy the show. Click on the stream or download links above to access, and please share this with music fans far and wide.

Enjoy.
