It has been so long! I missed you!

Sorry for the lack of an update for probably...two weeks? It's been pretty crazy. I was in an opera, I've been memorizing a ton of music for my recital, and as much as I wanted to update, I couldn't justify taking the time away from my other things.

I had an interesting progression through this show, and I'd like to know what you think of it. The most interesting point of the show for me was when I got a call from a listener asking to play my "favorite song in the entire world." It was a hard choice, but I went with the "Intermezzo" from Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni. It's a pretty famous piece, and you've probably heard it in a movie or in a commercial or something. I originally heard it from Rurouni Kenshin in the scene when Kenshin and Kaoru say goodbye at the beginning of the Kyoto Arc, which is visually a stunning thing to watch as well.

I also decided to play "Pavlov's Daughter" by Regina Spektor later in the show, because that was my second choice at the moment.

Besides those things, I don't have much to say...on to the playlist!

Delicious dish:
  1. Betty White: I've been wanting to play this on the radio for a long time, and I'm really happy I finally remembered while I was DJing for once! The first time I heard this skit I knew that it needed to be played on the radio, because that's what makes the skit funny: that if there were no visuals this would sound like a pile of lesbians. 
  2. Requests: Thanks for calling in, always. 
  3. The Cardigans: Um wow. So, I thought I'd listened to the cardigans before, but apparently I hadn't, because I'm in love. 
Disgusting dish:
  1. Very little direction: I had no real purpose during this show. There doesn't always need to be, but it felt like it was floating on the surface of something really good, you know? 
  2. ...: I really can't think of anything guys. I'm actually pretty happy with the show. Not overjoyed, but I can't really find any specific flaws except perhaps a lack of excitement on my part. 
Until next time. Adieu.
