Being on air at KSLG makes me happy. Subbing on KHSU, where I hosted a music show from approximately 2002 through 2005, reminds me how fun it is to shuffle through new CDs (CDs!), skip through tracks listening for what catches, have one song trigger the thought, “Oh, I should play this!” and then get to play it. I could’ve gone for hours. Thanks to Mad Doctor Matt for letting me fill in – I wasn’t anywhere near as smooth, but I sure enjoyed myself and think I provided an all right experience for anyone listening.
