Had a call this morning from someone, wanting to make a birthday request. As you most likely have realized by now, this is often a bit of an issue for me. Generally, I enjoy being helpful and getting something on the air that people can be enthusiastic about. What I don’t enjoy is being someone’s jukebox. So when the caller asked if I would play something by a band that I’m unfamiliar with (by streaming them through YouTube no less!) I had to tell them no. Then they whipped out the old “but I’m a community member of the station” bit on me. Okay, thanks. I appreciate your help keeping WDBX going. I’ll even go so far as to say that I’ll check out this band another time, and play them some other day if they work for the show. Nope– it’s gotta be now– it’s a birthday! And I’m a community mem–CLICK!
This happens all too often. Anyhow, I played “Satyrium,” and dedicated it to all birthdays occurring today. Figure that covers things. Moving on…
Sabrina Siegel is sick this week, so she won’t be able to join us for a call-in set. We’ll definitely be re-scheduling, so don’t worry. I’m going to play some of her stuff anyway!
I can’t say enough good things about the new Aural Terrains release, “Enantio_ΔPomia”. It definitely requires a lot of faith on part of the listener, even seeming “wrong” in parts, but just… wait. This is a really fine disc, and you’ll be glad you did.
I’m playing some of Audiomachie’s “Logomachie” disc now. This is a Vincent Bergeron project, with help from a number of talented collaborators. Lots of good ideas here!
