My archived radio show cohosting Mystery Train! Lots of local artists!

Early this morning, in the wee hours of 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. while most folks sleep, party or work graveyards. . . I got to cohost
Mystery Train with host David Wiley. You can listen to our show by clicking on the above link, scrolling down to Mystery Train "most recent show" (or "previous show" if you catch this a week later).

This was my first time managing the board by myself for the entire show broadcast live! It was more exciting and fun than I can express . . . I LOVE radio. And music. So, I brought in a ton of local stuff, favorite fiddlers, people who have shows coming up and so on.

People I played included two songs of That's What You Get, The Worn Out Shoes, The Black-Eyed Snakes, Popcycle (Local Smoke), The Deaths, Valet, Glenrustles, Spider John Koerner and Willy Murphy from a rare album, Gene Clark, The Dickel Bros., Bauhaus, Rev. Gary Davis, Marianne Faithful. David played tons of cool tunes -- we took turns with CD's and came up with some pretty interesting song connections and juxtapositions.

David was great to work with, so I felt more at ease with the board; it went pretty smoothly overall. I'd love to do this more, and as a matter of fact will be substituting for him on July 12, and interviewing Robin Kyle of Valet during that show, so mark your calendars for late Monday, early a.m. Tues. then, and call or write me with requests. You can call me then at the station too, at 612-341-0980.

By the way, B, thanks for that sweet surprise CD in the mail. That made my day. You can bet I shall be using that on future shows. You rock.
