I started 30 minutes early because DJ K-Smashballs, who was subbing the previous slot, insisted on getting to her job on time.

Herein is an Erik Satie set, which includes the Scavenger Quartet (led by Frank Pahl), Chicha Libre, and 2 pianists. I’m a novice Erik Satie fan, and I think that any time I hear a Satie cover, I’ll just add it to the Satie set and play the whole medley on the radio all over again. Speaking of which, would you consider pianists to be “cover artists”, playing music that they haven’t written?

My current hero = Christian Rudder, and I make no bones about it.

Stick with this til the end for some serious reverb action! Jim (our chief engineer and general operations manager at WCBN) brought a delay pedal to the station to test out (i.e., play with) the new setup he wired in the FM studio. Jim listened on the headphones and giggled nearby as I explored the reverb effects as best I could…

This one’s listener-approved!

Hear what it sounds like to be drunk and real high in the spirit of the Lord (1.5 hours):

I love that Freedom almost always provides a genius, seamless segue between our shows…Is this practic deliberate? I do not know.
