Hope you’re well. Today debuted French band Prototypes. It’s sweet, will be playing a lot of it but not out until August. Also the new Fleet Foxes record, local band, VERY promising. Speaking of local, debuted a new Common Market remix you should hear if you missed it. Also played Black Angels and Ghostland Observatory again today. BIG surprise there. If you haven’t heard, August 13th the GLO will play the KEXP BBQ! More details soon....
Some other new things today include the new Keane, Silversun Pickups, Phoenix and Lansing-Drieden....plus a bunch of old REM.....good times.
Here’s my morning
4:15AM - Slept in until 4:15AM
4:15:01AM - Realize that if you’re “sleeping in” until 4:15am something is wrong with you.
4:25AM - Wonder if I want to spend the 2 or 3 minutes shaving my face
4:30AM - Still no decision and realize I stood there for 5 minutes wondering if I should spend 2 or 3 minutes shaving
4:45AM - Put on new shirt
4:45-5AM - Drive to station, stop at a light that the city changed so it always is red when I get there. No cars are ever going the other way when I sit there. Picture some evil man watching me every morning on some camera sitting at the light like a dumb ass laughing while he eats a donut and says every day “I wonder if he’ll run it today?” I never do, I know I’m being watched.
5:01AM - Realize I might be paranoid
5:02AM - Realize that my shirt is too long. Wearing a “medium” sucks. It is always too long. Or maybe I’m too short? I tuck it in the front of my belt American Idol style
5:03AM - Realize I thought the words “American Idol style” outloud.
6AM - Start show
6-9AM - Drink around 18 cups of coffee
9:45AM - A delegation who work in radio from Nepal stop by and tour the booth
10AM - Cheryl and I talk about Jug bands
