Now Playing: aunt jessica - thin air
Topic: music appreciation
this morning, i hosted WFMU's Listener Hour. with my podcast, i'm always concerned with making sure everything that i play is "podsafe" - getting permission from artists and labels or acquiring music from online safe havens like the podsafe music network or ioda promonet. with that said, it was nice to be able to spin whatever i wanted for an hour. i'm so happy that i got a chance to do this. still all smiles at the end of the day... brought back a lot of great memories of college radio for me...
after a nervous slip-up in the beginning, it was relatively smooth sailing from here. fumbling over my words a little bit, but it's been a while since i've been on the air (almost nine years since i last hosted a radio show at WCDB). i had a lot of fun and it was a great way to start off the morning. many thanks to Brian Turner for getting things set up. respect due to Bill Mac and Michael Shelley for great shows before me and after me, respectively.
below is a playlist on the songs broadcast for my edition of the Listener Hour. audio archives of the show are hosted by WFMU and can be found here. i'm listed under my birth name (jason smith) for march 3, 2007. normally, streaming MP3 files are online for two weeks before they're taken off the site. the realaudio files stay up there forever...
