I swear I am not phoning it in, but there are weeks that I think I could have done better by you. I think I did pretty well tonight. I’m mixing it up, I’m surprising even myself! And I love the comments some of you are throwing my way.
Yes, where else are you going to hear Jefferson Starship, Black Sabbath and Ice-T all in the same show? Where indeed? Certainly not in local commercial radio stations.
Full disclosure: from time to time I have been known to button push on the car stereo. I may even stop on commercial rock station, formerly known as KSAN, which now goes by the unfortunate moniker “The Bone”. So sad. Recently I was noticing that of the ten songs I heard (I was driving for a while, OK?) not one of them was newer than 1978. 1978! What are they thinking? Who needs this? And then there’s Dave-FM “Totally Random Radio”. Yes. Random. From AOR all the way to MOR.
I promise never to insult your ears. I also want you to take more risks with your music listening. Start by enjoying more Radio Valencia. Then stretch out to KFJC, KALX and WFMU. There are so many brilliant non-commercial music stations across the dial (terrestrial and otherwise).
Radio Valencia is a self-funded endeavor. If you are enjoying our shows, I’d like to ask you to donate a few dollars our way. This link will take you to our PayPal, which is hosted by SFIndyMedia, our non-profit benefactor. All donations go to Radio Valencia. Thank you in advance.
