back on the radio...

It'd been more than a decade since I was on the air back in Boston at the now defunct Allston Brighton Free Radio.  I was inspired to go to the WUVT ORGY (their organizational meeting) and went through their AM training program.  One bright morning in April, I noticed that the automation was malfunctioning, rendering the station unlistenable with what sounded like two different channels playing simultaneously somehow.  Joe, who had supervised the AM training, happened to be there and agreed to let me go on the air under his sign-in name "Josee".

I was fumbling and nervous; but was just picking stuff off the fly and having a fabulous time.

Here's the link for the archived setlist:
