I finally got around to listening to this show, and I'm actually very happy with it. Although the beginning was pretty different from how I usually start a set (with a bang/with a Bootsy), as I was walking through the snow to get to my car, I felt oddly comforted by it. After giving it a listen, it's a good wintery mix of things.
Although I didn't have too many layering moments, I felt very solid about what I did do. The V for Vendetta layering and the Robert Frost layering I felt really good about. I do wish that I had slowed down my speech for the V for Vendetta quote. I think I did so about half way through, but I started a bit too fast, as my normal speaking voice is. The best moment was absolutely after I finished the speech and started to layer the 1812 Overture with Oumou Sangare, because for a majority of it, they were in the SAME TEMPO. Moments like this are why I'm a DJ. And then the fennesz after that while the cannons were going off?! Now that I think about it, this was a damn good layering folks.
EDIT: You know what, I've been listening to this set, and I think I like it more listening to it than I did actually DJing it, which is pretty rare for me. I didn't fully get to appreciate the music I was actually playing, so thank Zeus for the WCBN archiving system.
I also have a question for you all: do you enjoy my variety? I really mean it. Do you enjoy that I throw in dashes of metal after long sets of Tchaikovsky? Do you find chiptunes pleasant to the ear?
Either way crew, a jolly good set. Enjoy!

- 1812 epic layering: I already gushed about this. I'm super happy about this.
- Robert Frost: I'm very pleased with this LP that I found in the spoken word section. I will file that information away for future shows.
- High On Fire: I don't think I have enough metal in my life, especially because I actually really enjoy metal, and really enjoy Jack's University of Metal show as well. This song in particular was a nice mix for the set, methinks.
- Slow start: The beginning of this show felt a little sluggish to me, probably because I started out with some ambient electronica...and then played more ambient electronica. Womp womp.
- Tori Amos: Sorry Tori, but you kind of let me down. Apart from having a really killer title like "Tales of a Librarian," you kind of let me down.
- Port The Call: I got this as a request from a friend, but I couldn't find a good recording of it except a YouTube clip of a live recording at another radio station. Still a good song, but I think I failed the challenge of finding this song in a purer form.
Thanks for listening and keep doing your thing, listeners!
