I just bet I can multitask with the best of them. And when I say I can multitask, what I mean is I can’t. And neither can you. Really, you can’t, so stop putting on your resume as a skill. I was training a new DJ on Monday night, which takes some real direct attention. You need to be present if you’re showing a new host how the system works, as well as the Radio Valencia philosophy. I don’t want to play all ten minute songs throughout my show, so the training was happening in fits and starts. I think if you are paying attention you can hear the fits. ugh.

Some of the segues are less than pristine. I’m not proud.

I am however proud of the music I chose tonight. Brand spankin’ new music from Butthole Surfers/Melvins bassist Jeff Pinkus and Daddy Longhead. Also new music from Black MidiDavid McMurray, and Henry Kaiser. There’s also a tribute to ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill who passed away unexpectedly last week following a short illness. 

If you’re into ZZ Top (and who isn’t???) then be sure to check out my two hour Live Bootleg Bonanza tribute from Monday night. It’s two complete shows from 1980 and 1983.

Check out the playlist below for all the treats, and ignore the DJ error as I was training the next great Radio Valencia DJ. 

I thank you in advance.

Enjoy and please share.
