Playlist and notes for 11-23-12 

            So I’m at it again—making crazy sounds in the middle of the night! My second late-night set at KBOO started as soon as I walked in the building and was thrown into the middle of a post-Thanksgiving party. There were no less than 6 people there, and the average age of the group was probably about 23. There may have been some alcohol there, but since I don’t want to get anyone in trouble, I’ll just say that there was NO alcohol anywhere near the station.

            Right off the bat, I see a girl whose name escapes me now. I had never met her before, but she was “hi-5”ing everyone like crazy. Anyway, she asked me if I would play Die Antwoord, presumably because the guy who was currently on the air didn’t want to play it. I told her “yeah” mainly because I try to plan out my music set to pick up from where the previous host left off, and since they were playing up-tempo dance and hip hop music, Die Antwoord seemed to work just as well as anything I could have picked.

            So I keep the party music going until the last of those kiddos leave the station, then at 3 o’clock I start the experimental hour I had planned on doing. As usual, I don’t list the source material for my Random Moments, but I do include the list of songs that might have been played during the music collage.

            I use bold to indicate that I played all (or most) of the song and announced the song and artist on the air. The non-bold songs were used as background music or transitional cues, usually played in the background while I was talking. Listen along here; like my Facebook page here; follow me on Twitter here… Thank you all for your support.
