Horowitz: HEY GUYS! What's up?!
This is the first post of the summer term guys! As such, I decided to start off with a remix of my show's namesake. I'm really happy with this show, and I think it pretty much speaks for itself, and is a solid example of freeform as far as using various music selections.

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!

You are smart:
  1. Horowitz: Dear Lord, that man could play the piano. 
  2. First chunk: The beginning of the show just felt absolutely amazing. I've never had a 9-noon show before, and the energy after eating breakfast and coming straight to the station is amazing. I'm more of a morning person, so that helps, but even so, I think that the first 30 minutes solid felt awesome.
