WRKC: The Not-So-Hectic Eclectic Playlist 6/25/14

Another show beneath my belt. This week I got the opportunity to play some stuff from the fabulous Paul Shapera, whose show, The Dolls of New Albion, is going to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year. (There are a handful days left for the kickstarter.)

Also, Foster the People show is happening at the Bryce Jordan Center on 9/5/14 with tickets on sale 6/27. That was fun to announce!

Ooof. I'm tired. Mostly from getting chased around the studio by Sue Henry. But you know, just another day in radio land.

Thanks to everyone who listened and called in!


And now...

WRKC: The Not-So-Hectic-Eclectic Playlist 6-18-14

Well, hey there everybody! I had a lot of fun this week on the show, though I missed having Christina Musumeci play live... (If you missed it, too, there are videos here and here.) I didn't get to play A Tribe Called Red, but Therese on The Hypnotic Electronic did, and I just wanted to give everyone a heads up about these artists because good stuff. But don't take my word for it... they recently got some positive press over at Rolling Stone.

I started roughly a half hour early this week, which was cool because I never actually get through the whole playlist before its time to go. Old habits. In the beforetimes, air shifts lasted 4 - 6 hours and I have a tendency to over-program.

Without further pre-amble, here is ...

WRKC: The Not-So-Hectic-Eclectic Playlist 6/11/14

This week was really a special week as a good friend of mine was able to take a break from a recording session in order to perform for us. I will be posting audio on youtube some time later so you get to hear the brilliance of Christina Musumeci's voice and mad songwriting skillz. There's a bit of an interview, and a lot of goofing around. *Note: We may not be the first to have invented percussion via urine, however we might be the first to discuss this over the airwaves.

Due to the zaniness of today's show (including an appearance by Dr. Ham and his dishwashing monkey) the actual passage of time got away from me. (Surely a sign of an excellent time had by all, I hope.)

WRKC: The Not-So-Hectic-Eclectic Playlist 6/4/14

Well, hello there music lovahs. This week was relatively free of technical issues, for which this old-timey, mostly cd-using dj is grateful. It was full of whispering, though. Some of that whispering was requested.

What is not full of whispers, is this week's rad playlist.
