Radioculars: the blog

Fellow WMWM deejay Scott Gorke made this cute promo for my last Radioculars at WMWM Salem. Not gonna lie, when the Navajo Bixby kicks in, I got a little misty.

This tumblr thing isn’t really working out. (it’s not you, it’s me)

I’ve begun experimenting with Pinterest. It’s still rough around the edges (for example you can see how I’d like to decorate my new apartment if you want) but I think it’s going to be a cool way to not only hear the music, but see the great art that goes along with it.

Anyway, check it:

HEY DRUNK DIALERS!

Happy 2012 everyone!

More audio goodness: an old WMWM ID from 1994.

COSMIC FLASHBACK:

DJ Creme Filling got me a really thoughtful gift this Xmas- a USB cassette deck so I can convert all of my old recordings to mp3.

Fittingly, the first thing I converted was my WMWM audition tape. Here’s a little clip.

Pretty proud of my 17 year old self for my audition selections: Sebadoh, Swirlies, Built to Spill, New Bomb Turks…

CALLING ALL DRUNK DIALERS

It’s that time of year again!

DIAL 978-410-WMWM (9696) during this weekend’s festivities and tell us what your resolutions are, or just get drunk and say hello.

PS: Allan didn’t live up to this particular 2011 resolution. Bummer.
