Had some time to kill this afternoon while waiting on some ribs to cook up on the grill. Decided to jump on the tables and put together an impromptu radio show on ustream.tv. 75 minutes, mixing up some new arrivals, some classics, and some stuff I literally just grabbed randomly off the wall.
The Ozone Show: Saturday Night Special (1-26-13)
Bolivar Blues Band: Speaker Equilibrium (Bolivar Speaker Works, 1977)
Asha Puthli and the Surfers: Sunny (Columbia India, 1960s)
The Mandells: There Will Be Tears (Trans World Sound, [...]

In going through my old radio aircheck tapes, I found one labelled with my dude Adam Mansbach’s name, from 2003. How old is this? It’s so old that he tells us to “look out for my upcoming book, The Angriest White Boy in the World” (or something like that; I’m paraphrasing). That book, of course, turned out to be entitled Angry Black White Boy but my point is: this was from a ways back.
Adam is now touting his latest book (two novels and one [...]

So…it only took me a dozen or so years to get around to digitizing more of my KALX shows but at the risk of being self-absorbed, it’s interesting to me to revisit a period of my musical life to see what kind of records were a big deal to me back then and what I’d still cosign on today.
I just posted an old show, also from 2000, the other week. This latest comes from the literal end of 2000, a December 27th show. Alas, I don’t have the playlist [...]

Thanks again to Michael Barnes of the Melting Pot for letting me sub his show this past Sunday. It’s been at least six years that I had to host a show on my own and let’s just say it’s not like learning to ride a bicycle again. More like trying to remember how to cook a recipe!
The total show was 2 hours but a recording snafu killed the last 40 minutes so here’s the first 80 minutes of the show, including mic breaks.
Here’s the total playlist:
DJ Day: Drum Track #2

I often times forget that when I’m too busy to do a full post, I still have roughly 10 years worth of radio shows to draw from so long as I remember to digitize them once in a while. Here’s a show from about five years ago (christ, I can’t believe 2002 = five years ago. Damn, I feel old). I like how I talk about a “new segment” on the show but I’m pretty sure I stopped doing the “Under the Covers” segment after only a handful of times…not for any particular reason besides laziness. Still, [...]
