Unfortunately, I’m not able to run my show this week. The one and only Grapefruit Jones will be taking over my time this week, thanks to him for filling in! I should be back next week, and hopefully I’ll see you all then.
I’m back home for the holidays! Today I had my brother act as guest DJ today. It was great to have him with me! He helped me pick some songs out. Finals are over which is fantastic news of course, but boy did they tire me out, so I didn’t pick music that was quite as energetic as last time. Thanks for tuning in! See you all next week.
They’re not songs that belong in the dump, they’re songs you listen to on your way to the dump. When I was little, my dad had a CD in his truck that he would put on when we took our garbage to the dump. For most of the show, I played my best memory of what was on that CD. The real thing has unfortunately been lost to the wheels of time, but I did my best. For the rest of the show, I went off the vibe of what was on that CD.
My dad once said he knew I was growing up when having me help take trash to the dump sped up the process instead of slowing it down. Now I’m so grown up that I take my own trash out on occasion! How time flies…
On another note, I also got some equipment to connect my record player to my computer, so I can stream audio from records for these live remote shows. I gave it a whirl for this show, and it worked!
Genesis visited Detroit last night, and I was fortunate enough to see them play. It was really exciting to see them still on the road! I’m still all worked up about it, so today’s episode was nothing but Genesis-mania.
Props to Phil Collins for going on tour at his age and in his condition. He wasn’t able to play the drums for this tour, and his son Nic Collins has taken over that role, which was pretty cool to see. Come back next week for a bit of a trip down nostalgia lane for me.
