Blast from the past

The Ozone Show, Tuesday, October 14, 2003
90.7 FM, KALX, Berkeley

It’s been a long time coming but I’ve been meaning to digitize a few of my old radio shows. For those of you who didn’t know, I did college radio for over 10 years, all at KALX in Berkeley. This was one of my last shows, in late 2003, before I left radio and – coincidentally – started audioblogging. Seems like a good time to bring it full circle, plus give ya’ll some tunes to listen to while I’m busy with some writing work that’s keeping me from blogging more. The total show was actually 2.5 hours but I edited out the first hour. I also cut out most of my “radio DJ” dialogue out (save for the first bit) since, really, you don’t need to hear me talking about ride share programs and other PSAs. Here’s the playlist of what’s included:

    Memphix: Keys to Go
    Eugene Blacknell: The Trip
    The Temprees: Explain It To Her Mama
    Fania All Stars: Viva Tirado

    Memphix: Comfortable With Failure
    Crystal Mansion: And It Takes My Breath Away
    Abel: Music Maker
