I’ve been in a relatively low-key mood for this broadcast. DJ Mo has been helping me get the station ready for the arrival of her guest DJ friends– they’re covering Kids Kamp in the next time slot. As I announced earlier, I played from the John Cage material made available to me by the OgreOgress label; these are recordings from their upcoming release of Cage’s “Twenty-Six with Twenty-Nine,” “Twenty-Six with Twenty-Eight & Twenty-Nine,” and “Eighty”… I’ll be hosting the world premiere for “Twenty-Six with Twenty-Eight & Twenty-Nine [Eighty-Three]” next week. Obviously, this is a pretty big deal for “It’s Too Damn Early,” and I’m proud to be part of Cage history in some small way.
Otherwise, I’m just trying to do the good volunteer thing– sprucing up the station a bit, since I’m relatively sure some of Mo’s friends have never been here before. WDBX has to make a good impression, you know? Also, The Land Of has me flustered! I screwed up the artist/album title last time I played The Green Kingdom’s disc “Laminae,” switching them up… and I did it again! Let’s hope Google cache didn’t nab me. Either way, it’s a really good album, and the package printing is lovely. Some of the Sweet Action guys were fondling it earlier. Had to suggest they find their own copy, thank you!
