short statement on today's show

In the middle of today's show, I decided on-air to quit after this week. Perhaps it seemed random and unexpected, but I've considered quitting for personal reasons ever since I came back on the station last summer. The technical mishaps and poor quality of today's show were just the last straw.

I don't know.

It would be a shame for me to go out on such a bad note. Maybe I will try to do one more good show next week. I will have to go do some soul-searching now.

I apologize for all this craziness, and I appreciate your patience and understanding.

Perhaps I may explain more later, but feel free to post comments in the meantime.

all-request show

So, today I had an all-request show, and people kept making requests until the end of the show! Yay!

Why did I do it today? I don't know, I just wanted to see if I could actually do one. And I did!

I'm sorry that I had to make it happen by deliberately sabotaging my show (by playing the greatest song in the world at the very beginning of the show, ensuring that the show would go downhill unless I had outside intervention), but that was really awesome. Thanks to everyone who made requests!

Anyway, here's the show:

everytime i hug him, i feel so SHISHO!!!

Big Kiddo CD release show on Saturday! YAAAYYYYY!!! But I'm going to have to miss Daniel Johnston for it. Awwwww!!! :(

I just saw The Devil and Daniel Johnston for the first time this past weekend. It's really incredible, and now I understand why everyone involved in the indie scene in Texas reveres Daniel Johnston as a god...

"Do you really love me?" Yes, I do, Daniel!

By the way, sorry about the confusing way in which I tried to say that "Do You Really Love Me?" and "Tell Me Now" are the same song. You'll hear what I'm referring to when you download the show.

You'll also get to hear one of the most amazing songs ever: Boyracer's cover of "Total Eclipse of the Heart". It may end up being the number one single of the year. Yes, it might actually beat out "Hands Up Baby" by Camera Obscura, or "Anatomy of the Animal's Attitude" by the Hat Company, or even "Bun Bun" by the Afternoon Naps.

And during the show, I found an entry for "shisho" on urbandictionary.com. And I just noticed that it was submitted by people from California. The band, ShiSho, is from Columbus, so they may have had nothing to do with submitting that entry. Which would be amazing because the Urban Dictionary definition perfectly describes the band.

And that's all that I have for now. Here's the show...

mi vida es nada sin una novia indie...

I just realized that I forgot that May 4th is on Friday and I didn't play the Dandy Warhols' version of "Ohio".

But yeah, it was a pretty good show, anyway. Even though I said some crazy/weird things on the air during the second hour.

But people listened. Yay! And people actually called in for the Casper/Icicles/Afternoon Naps tickets! Double yay!

So, maybe I'll see you at that show tomorrow night, eh?

And next week, I'll have tickets to the Kiddo CD release show. It's a good CD, too! And like I said, if you can't wait, it's already been on iTunes for quite a while.

And I think that's all that I have to say for now. Here's the show. And yes I did remember to change the CD this time...
