Howdy y'all. 

This post represents the second half of the longest night/morning of my life, but also one of the most fun and testing nights/mornings I've had DJing. The show started at 6am, when I had already done 3 hours of DJing at my normal slot. The transition between the two shows was actually really smooth, and I think Mic (the DJ I subbed for) for that, because he requested I start it with gospel, which really threw me full on into the next show. 

My favorite thing about this show, and what really makes it special to me, is that I had my friends Chris Dupont, Katie Van Dusen, and Betsy King come in and perform some stuff from Chris's album, "Lay No Claim," which you can find on Bandcamp. You can also check out his MySpace page here. I've never had a live band come in before, and I hope I can have them again sometime. It was really valuable to have people to talk to on the show also, so hopefully I'll incorporate some interviews/chats/whatever into my show soon. Anyway, enjoy the show!

The Good Stuff
  1. Chris Dupont Trio: I was so excited to have live music on my show, and I'm so lucky that I have friends that were so excited to perform live. It was a great experience, and I hope I get to repeat it many times. 
  2. Velveteen Rabbit: I really loved this track, and I think it was a great way to mellow out the morning music to its fullest. 
  3. Wild Rover by The Pogues: Loved this because I accidentally had it set on 45in rather than 33in, so it played WAY slower than it should have. I liked it though. Sounded like a band of giant Irishmen.
Could Be Better Stuff
  1. Keeping focused: I think I either needed food or coffee, or maybe just a little more energy from inside, because then I think I would have a better handle on everything I was doing, as far as having a live group come in.
  2. Experimenting: Could have experimented more, but I also like the minimalism of this show, especially with the live band coming in. 
Thanks for sticking with me guys. You can download this show and share it with everyone you know, and also make sure to check out their site/download their album, because they are so so good.
