OMG I'M DJING AGAIN! I can feel like a real person again!

I'm so happy to be back at the station DJing. I really enjoyed Radiovision, and I'm glad that I took last week off to recuperate, and I really do love being on the Board of Directors and getting involved with the station happenings, but there's really nothing like DJing guys. The rush of adrenaline. The absolutely feeling of spontaneity and chance. It's like a game or a puzzle, but like a puzzle you can share with others and say, "Did I solve it? What do you think?"

Something I really liked about this show was that it came right after Arwulf's show. Arwulf has been a big inspiration since I started DJing, so it was nice to visit his show again, and to feed off of the amazing energy that he gives when he plays music. I think that it really helped my show immensely, and I'm so grateful to share the same station as him. I also was affected by having only 2 hours, rather than 3, to play around with. It was a nice balance, because it helped me focus my set, and not fool around too much about what I wanted to do. Condensing a lot of ideas into a short amount of time is something that Arwulf is really amazing at, and also for that reason I was grateful for following him.

But anywho, here's the list:

Party Animals: 
  1. Beginning with Bootsy: I don't think I will ever be sick of Bootsy. I love Bootsy. He loves me. I should remember that ANY Bootsy track is a good starter. 
  2. Tuba Canon: One of my better ideas for sure was to play 3 different recordings of "Tuba miram" from the Mozart Requiem, but at slightly different times. I think this come out quite well, and there were quite a few harmonically ambiguous moments where I wasn't sure about where we were. I think I will try that again sometime. 
  3. Kris Ellestad: This is a new CD that Pascal put in the station recently, and he let me rip it before he even put it in the station. I'm really in love with Kris Ellestad's music
Party Fouls:
  1. Extra Supremes: I didn't mean to play that couple of seconds of The Supremes for a transition. Choose the wrong turntable to press the cue button!
  2. Continuous multi-track CD for filler: I used the lute CD as background for the events information, but there were some weird pauses because I decided to set the CD player to continuous. I didn't think about that happening since with records it goes pretty quickly. And usually I use a long track anyway. I will use long tracks in the future and not numerous short tracks. I should also loop tracks more often. 
  3. Same track for multiple track times: I think the playlist had me playing "Sylvia!" for quite a long time. I kept thinking I was messing up which cue I was using, but really I just kept moving up the track unnecessarily. Whoops! Sorry if you were depending on the playlist to know what you were hearing! 
Tune in  from 3-6am this weekend for my regular show! I can't wait to do some real damage to your brainwaves! 


  1. I LOVE the Supremes!! More.....and Diana Ross and Roberta Flack....ahhh..
