|Horowitz: HEY GUYS! What's up?!|
I don't know if you know this, but there's a lot of thought that goes into what time slot a DJ wants. I happened to get my first choice, which is great, but just choosing what my first choice should be is a hard thing for me. Not only is there the dilema of sleep vs. availability, but the bigger issue for me is censorship. I might have mentioned this in another post, but the difference of how a show feels during "safe harbor" (when we can't play curse words), and non-safe harbor (between 10pm-6am), is pretty big for me. That also has to balance with the difference between having a show late at night, which will have less listeners, and a show in the morning, which will have more.
That all said, I'm ultimately really pleased with my spot, and it's really amazing what a new time slot can do for the morale and energy of a show. Each time my time slot has changed, it has taught me a little bit more about what kind of DJ I am.
All right, onto the list!

- Shostokovich/Huun Huur Tu Layer: Usually I'm pretty satisfied with my layers, but...this time I'm not so sure. It was a bit...off.
