I feel like a horrible, horrible friend for having waited so long to post this for you. I really do. But I have a few good excuses:
  1. My senior recital
  2. Graduation
  3. 40-hour a week job
  4. Catching up on a year's worth of sleep
Maybe only a couple of those are valid, but either way, I'm finally able to update this bad-boy.

By Ray Young Chu
Dinosaurs were a big part of the set today, and I want to explain something to all of you in regards to this request: I want more. I want more requests like this. I love specific song requests, that's great, artist requests too, but my favorite game to play in the WCBN library is, "Find the Theme." Even if you don't hear the theme viscerally in the music, it helps me to link my entire set together, and give it an extra punch. You know how you can request themes, my friends? In order of certainty:
  1. Call the station: (734) 763-3500
  2. Post on my Facebook page
  3. E-mail me
And if I don't get it, then you've given me a new theme for next week!

Oh friend oh!:
  1. Xiu Xiu: I need to listen to more Xiu Xiu for xiure, but "Boy Soprano" in particular will always be stuck in my head. The kinds of instrumental layering that Xiu Xiu does is just insane, and I feel like I'm listening to a Salvador Dali painting.
  2. Dinosaurs!: Thank you, listener, for requesting songs about dinosaurs. I had a lot of fun finding songs, and I got a couple of good requests from other DJs and listeners for songs to play. It's like a game for me, so thanks for playing along. Charlie the Unicorn in particular was a lot of fun to listen back to.
  3. Schumann: That Romance in F-Sharp was definitely one of my favorite moments on the entire set, and it truthfully made me stop what I was doing and listen.
No friend no!:
  1. Romance With You: Perhaps this was so bad it was good, but I really feel it was just baaaad.
  2. Johnny Cash: I can only say I liked it because it was Johnny Cash. Nothing else. 
  3. Too Two Xiu Xiu: I hadn't forgotten that I had played Xiu Xiu at the beginning of the set, but for some reason I felt compelled to play another Xiu Xiu song.
See you next time!

  1. I didn't know Johnny Cash had a children's album, it could be a collector's item!!
    I've been looking for a song "Raining Again" Roberta Flack for about 10 years. I sang it over and over again after my heart was broken by a college sweetheart. Maybe it's there at WCBN. (a challenge, of course)
