Melting Pot

First “real” show in over a month and with the move into the new house, I barely know where anything is. Combined with the whirlwind that is the begin of a new semester, I was woefully ill-prepared for this weeks show. There are a few more mistakes than usual, but that’s mainly because I was forced into “seat of the pants” radio and things didn’t settle down until well into the second hour. Fair amount of new tunes, including a new project from Doom titled JJ Doom, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffitti, Kendra Morris and the Menahan Street Band. There are a number of summer songs in the mix as well, since Labor Day is the “unofficial” end of summer, including some recent faves from Shintaro Sakamoto, Real Estate, Allo Darlin, Katalyst and a classic from Jimi. Enjoy the show, we’ll have much more new music next week and I’ll make sure that the ship is running right and tight.
