radio boise playlist for week of 10/23/06 - - Here comes Halloween, ready or not

Could be that the only thing that's more fun than stacking up a new pile of old music for you to listen to is stacking up a big steaming pile of holiday or theme music.

Ooooh - - It's a scary one, kids...

Drop me a line via the 'Email me' link on this page.

Say hello, or ask me how I managed to find so many 'answer' versions to
'They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha-Ha', or better yet - - Why?!

Howly Happoween!

radio boise playlist for week of 10/16/06

How does the mind of a DJ work?

I've been putting together sets of music for many years now, and I don't have an answer.

Maybe it's too simple (or trivial) a process to require explanation.

On occasion (like this particular show) I'm at a loss to pinpoint the origins of the connections that lead from one piece of music to the next.

The concern that I'm beyond any reasonable understanding whether that flow of connections makes ANY LICK of sense to anyone besides me may be another matter entirely.

Do you 'get' it? Do you care if you don't?

- - Which is likely your cue: Drop me a line and say 'Like, WTF??' by clicking on that 'Email me' link over in that box to your right. Questions, suggestions, howdys, etceteras...

Bottom line: If you are one-tenth as entertained listening to my shows as I am concocting them, it's all worth it, regardless. I'm happy to let the mystery be.
Thanks for stopping by!

Never forget: At it's core, Rock and Roll is MEANT to be bad for you.

It can shake you up, frighten your parents, jar you from your routine, brighten your day, lift your spirits, expand your mind, and put a bump in your grind.

I found some rockin' beats to scatter liberally throughout this show. Found some other stuff, too, and had the usual barrel of monkeys fitting it all together.

Feel free to drop a line via the 'Email me' link o'er yonder. Say hey, ask a question, or leave a suggestion for a future show. Many thanks!

"We are all driven by an invisible whip. Some run, some have fun, some are hip, some tip, some dip, but we all must answer to the invisible whip."

- - Roland Kirk, 1969
(from the original liner notes to his 'Volunteered Slavery' LP)

I think perhaps you can make a guess about one or two of my invisible whips.

Go on ahead, drop me a line and tell me all about YOUR invisible whip by clicking on the 'Email me' link imbedded within that box to your right.
Or perhaps you'd feel more comfortable depositing a question about the music or a suggestion for a future show? Up to you, really...
