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.
