Host of “The Mid Day Show” (Mon-Fri, 10 am – 2 pm): My show comes together in a completely organic way. No matter how much I plan throughout the week and carefully select CDs and LPs before my show, I invariably end up hearing a bassline or a beat or a thread in the music that makes me think of “the perfect song” to follow the one I’m playing and dash into the music library with a minute or two left in the song to grab the “perfect” next song. I do this all night long for the duration of my 4-hour show. So, every show is intimate and absorbing, and often exhausting, musical experience blending a wide range of musical styles and reflecting whatever mood I’m in at any given time.
