Freestailo #44 - 8/24/12

I don't know what was different about this day from other days, but I had a lot of fun on the show this morning. I think it must of been a combination of getting almost enough sleep, and also getting a couple of calls from listeners, which is always really encouraging/interesting, no matter what. It seems to be that starting of any set with some uptempo music from the African section really does it for me. Who knew?

A major thing in this show that I did differently than normal was that I used a huge amount of 7" records. That's not something I've ever dived head-first into, but have dabble with from time to time, and never from the metal filing cabinets in the other room. I think I had a good variety of local 45s and older 45s from the cabinets, but tell me what you think.

Thinking about 45s more, this also kind of makes me think that when WCBN trains new DJs, they should have one 45 record required for the demo tape, because I honestly didn't play a 45 until I was settled in the station for a few months, and then I was really scared and confused when I tried to do it, and didn't understand why there was a big hole in the middle of it instead of one to fit right around the center of the turntable. *headdesk*

Anyway, take a listen. I think you'll like it.

Puffy Amiyumi
HEY I'M BACK! You still missed me, right?

So as the rotation gods would have it, I had the Latin Show and Radiozilla back-to-back this Sunday, and honestly, and can't think of a better two hour slot to have. This Radiozilla was especially eventful because I had two people in the studio with me, one being my friend who was visiting, and another being Gus, who is a trainee to become a real-life WCBN DJ! Yaaaay Gus! Luckily for me (and him, who are we kidding), he chose to do his specialty apprenticeship with me during Radiozilla, so a few of these tracks were picked out by him! I've notated which ones with a "+" beforehand. We also learned that we have similar favorite SNES, such as Chrono Trigger and Super Mario RPG, which makes me like Gus a lot, so we'll probably be best friends now.

Seriously though, it's amazing to see these newbies, and what kind of music they pick out when they have the chance to explore. That's a major thing I love about WCBN, and sometimes I wish we could do more collaborative radio, like how this show was done.

Anyway, enough jibber-jabber.

[Artist: Song - Album]
  1. Polysics: Buggie Technica - Hey! Bob! My Friend!
  2. Puffy Amiyumi: Radio Tokyo - Splurge
  3. +Nobukazu Takemura: Everyone Gets His Own Nemesis - Akey To The Underworld

  5. Petty Booka: Chotto Matte Kudasai - Let's Talk Dirty In Hawaiian
  6. Asobi Seksu: I'm Happy But You Don't Like Me - Asobi Seksu
  7. Xtatika: Gone - Tongue Bath
  8. Mai Hoshimura: Stay With You - Japan For Sale Vol. 3
  9. +Ken Ishii: Frame Out - Jelly Tones
  10. Yoko Kanno: Cat's Delicacy - Vision of Escaflowne OST 2
  11. +Martin Atkins' China Dub Soundsystem: Mostly Hulusi - Made In China
  12. Kicking Giant: Alien ID - Alien ID
  13. +Atau: delull - biorhythms
  14. +Himawari: Wonder Pan - Mineral
  15. Fushitsusha: (track 3) - DBL Live Disc 2
I'm Happy:
  1. Gus ole buddy: Gus did a really great job, and I don't think I can say enough how happy I am to have him at WCBN now, and how excited I am to hear what kind of music he checks out in the future for his own show.
  2. Puffy Amiyumi: Remember that cartoon, Teen Titans? Well, I don't know about you, but the first time I heard of Puffy Amiyumi was because they did the theme song to this show, and I'm not going to lie...I really liked this show. I also had NO IDEA we had so much Puffy Amiyumi in the station! You will hear more Puffy Amiyumi on my freeform show soon...
  3. Martin Atkins: This track was so great. So, so, so great. I love how the hulusi was incorporated, and I really want to figure out how much of it was analog, and how much of it was digitally composed. Songs where I have to question that are what really blow my mind. Good pick, Gus!
But You Don't Like Me:
  1. Honestly I got nuthin': This was a great show.
Ja ne, minna-san!

Cumbia dancing
Hola chicos, ¿cómo estás? Hoy me tocan música latina para usted!

I don't normally do the Latin show, but I really love Latin music for a reason unknown to me as of yet. It could be because our Latin section is BALLER but who knows. This was an especially lively show because there were a lot of people milling about: me, my friend who visited me at the station, and about 4 random guys in the lobby who I ran into. Actually, one of them was Argentinian, and he was really enjoying the show. Yay!

Something interesting happened on the show today. I had a listener call in asking for something "cumbia." I asked him for maybe a band name, but he said, "You could probably educate me on some band names." This is something I find interesting, and I want to call attention to it. I was talking to another friend, who listens to WCBN quite a lot, and is a self-proclaimed groupie. We were talking about my process for picking out music, and she suddenly said, "Wait, you don't listen to everything before hand? I thought you only played music you knew really well." I want to say right now, listeners, that this is 100% false. Most of the tracks I play I have never listened to. When I go to the station to DJ, I intend to explore the library, and open my horizons. When I play the Latin show, I want to learn more about Latin music, and share what I'm learning with you. I'm not trying to oppress you with my choices, but work with you to create something really beautiful. If you have a request, I love to take them. If you don't have a request, I want to share what I think sounds interesting or new to me. Sometimes I'll even play tracks that I'm at first skeptical about so that I can learn more about it.

That's my two-cents. Enjoy the show.

  2. Cumbia: So glad my listener requested this! It was fantastic!

You'll understand why I chose this picture
if you listen to the show. 
Today's show was very special, because I had a special guest artist on the show! John Boyle asked me maybe a month ago if he could come on the show, talk a bit, and play his music. He had a show at the Canterbury house the next day, which unfortunately I didn't get to go to, but I hope some of you went.

It was really refreshing to talk to someone with a different sensibility about music than I have, but with similar philosophies about music in general. After talking to John, I learned that he's been to quite a few radio stations across the country, and loves the kind of freeform we do (yaaay!). Since John stayed during the rest of my show after the interview, I also got a chance to use his music in some layering, which couldn't have turned out better. I really want to thank John for creating this music that gave me the opportunity to create a radio piece like on today's show, and I very much hope that you enjoy listening to it as much as I did creating it.

To the music!

Giddy on up:

  1. Dat layer: That incredibly long layer that I did with John Boyle's material was absolutely stunning to do, and I'm still a little floored by how well it went. I think the best part was when the Mantovani record started to skip, which allowed me so much more to work with. AND THEN when it randomly came out of its groove to finish the song, exactly when I would have liked it to. It was magical, so take a listen. 
  2. Trayer: I'm really obsessed with this album, guys. I ripped it and took it home, and it's been in my ears ever sense. 
Giddy on down:

  1. Dead air: There were a few times when there was just flat-out dead air, and no excuse at all. Sometimes I'd be running around the station. There was that time I was making coffee. There was that time I was on the phone with a listener. Everything.
  2. Misplays: There were a few times that I wanted to play something in particular, but then I played something else. I'm really not too upset after the fact, but when it happens it's like THE END OF ZE WORLD. 
Thanks for listening! Check out John Boyle, and tune in for the next show!

There wasn't anything particularly special about this show (aside from the fact that soul and funk are awesome), but I really enjoyed spinning these tunes, and I'm sure you'll enjoy them. I did get one call from a listener who requested a string of Motown, but it was within the last 10 minutes of the show, so I tried my best to accomodate.

By the way, if you have anything you want me to play, did you know you can request songs? You can call (734) 763-3500, which will connect you right to the FM Studio at WCBN, and you can talk to the DJ who is currently DJ AT THAT MOMENT to request a song. It's pretty exciting. You should do it often, because we love you guys.

Let's get your funk on.

I've been thinking a lot guys. LIKE A LOT. And I decided that I needed to do more experimenting in this show. And by more, I mean not more often, but a higher quality of experimentation. My idea was just to use 3 turntables: one with heavy electronic stuff, one with avant-garde stuff, and another with some jazz. I wanted to leave the electronica on for its duration, but use the avant-garde stuff to create some heavier beats and mixing material, and eventually layer the jazz in the same way until I could just play it straight through. during the layering, I basically just played with the turntable. I sped it up to 45 and 75, and then back to 33, and I modulated the pitch/speed. I also picked up the needle and laid it down on the heavier beats in the electronic track, not to mention doing a little wicka-wicka, which fulfills one of my dreams from this list:

  1. Do a wicka-wicka on a turntable on the radio
  2. Have a Zelda wedding
  3. Have a steampunk wedding
  4. Write a novel
  5. Fly on a whale
I realize I won't be able to do actually, but they are dreams, right? NOW GO DREAM AND LISTEN TO MY SHOW!

No Caps:
  1. Twenty-Five: This was kind of a low-energy end to a great set. I could have ended on a much funkier note. 
  2. Out of place classical?: I wasn't sure, but the Dvorak felt a little misplaced within the set, but I'm not too concerned about it either. 
Good show overall. Happy listening!

Since Saramin wanted to go off and do A2 Art Fair stuff methinks, I took her show! Yay! I know this post took a long time, but I promise it'll be worth it. I love a lot of the stuff I played, and it's always fun to get outside of my 9am-noon slot to bring some music to you. For this particular episode I had a guest with me, which was super fun, and should happen way more often.

Also, let me put this out here: if any of you ever want to come to my show. I mean, come IN PERSON to my show, please just give me a holler. I like to think I'm a pretty friendly person, and you could even help me pick out music and I can show you around. There's this thing called the 6 O'Clock Shadow we have every Friday at 6pm where we invite listeners to come in and try out the DJ thing, but don't let that limit you to when you can come to the studio. We are always in need of new DJs, and I bet if you like WCBN, then you probably have thought about what it's like.

Anyway, onto the music.

  1. Snow White and Red Rose: This layering was a lot of fun, and I kind of was planning it from the beginning of the show, and waiting for a good time to bring it out. I've been reading a lot of Fables, and the character Red Rose is in it, but I had never heard of her, despite my self-proclaimed knowledge of fairy tales. The thing about the comic series is that it's a bit darker and more mature than other versions of these fairy tales you might have heard, so I wanted to emphasize that with the Ether and Niederflur tracks that I layered along with it.
  2. Cataract: This was a nice mid-length track to play, which is a nice balance between the really short thrash-core metal songs, and the 20-minute stoner metal songs you can find around the station. I love me some metal guys.
  3. Fugees: I'm kind of obsessed with them right now, and I think that I need to play more. 
  1. Gay Men's Chorus?: This wasn't as good as I thought it would be, but I think that the fact that it's a Gay Men's Chorus makes up for it. Hahaha.
  2. General awkwardness: I was a little distracted sometimes during the show, so some of the transitions weren't perfect, but sometimes that happens when I'm by myself anyway, so whatever.
Thanks for listening as always! Get ready for more updates!
