I filled in for Matt Doctor Matt last Saturday at KSHU. Since I get to be on the radio all the time, I rarely pick up shifts there – figure I should leave them for folks who don’t get much regular airtime. But I love Alternative Therapy, so this time, I jumped at the chance.

So weird to do KHSU after a year-and-a-half of KSLG. Like going from a 2005 automatic to a 1973 stick shift: you’re still driving, but it’s a definite adjustment. Plus, although the lack of commercials felt like drinking dandelion tea, not having those five minutes every 15 minutes or so to preview lyrics or otherwise think about what I was doing meant a more immediate What! To! Play! Now!? Ah, yes… I remember this feeling.

Superfun. I won’t be doing it again any time soon (see above), but what a great couple hours. (Thanks, Matt!)
