radio boise playlist for the evening of 12/13/06 - - Hey, something new! It was a LIVE show!

So - - Last Wednesday night I went in to the Radio Boise studio for some training on their sound board.

Just between you and me, the word on the street is that sometime in '07 the FCC might finally give the thumbs up for Radio Boise to hit the FM dial. In gearing up for that very exciting event, several of the DJs (including myself) are beginning to take the steps towards live broadcasting. Hopefully in the near future my current show will be supplanted by a live show that's oh-so much closer to the type of thing I've enjoyed constructing in the past.

My experience the other night was great fun; It's been - what? - ten months or so since my last show at KALX in Berkeley. Despite many clunky attempts at trying to understand the ins & outs of a set-up that's all new to me (or perhaps because of it) it was a great joy to once again be feeling the excitement and anxiety of live deejaying.

Hopefully it'll soon become a regular thing, and I'll start taking my shoes off and doing it right...

Down below is a listing of what went out on this little live show. If you have any questions or comments or suggestions, as always please feel no hesitation to click that 'Email me' link over to the right. Thanks again...
