Woody Radio DJ Mike Show #6, 1/2/2018

DjMikeWoodyRadio2018. It has a nice ring to it. After having not been on the air since last year, I was itching to get back on, so I did my sixth Woody Radio show on the night of January 2.

We featured some brand new for 2018 music from The Bottle Kids–a great power pop band based in Paris, France (!) and Berkeley, CA. Look for their new album, “Let Me In On This Action”, to be burning up playlists everywhere in 2018. In addition, I played an old favorite, “Drive Somewhere”, by The Vulgar Boatmen, and told a tale of what I like to call “Musical E.S.P.”, to lead into it. That still gives me chills, of the good kind, to this day.

So here’s the thing. I was able to squeeze 48 songs into a show that ran 3 hours and 15 minutes long. Woody Radio is completely commercial-free, and we DJs get to program whatever music we want to hear. I kind of do the show on the fly. I’ll start with many dozens of songs on my short list, stuff that I think I might want to play for you that evening. I’ve got easy accesss to thousands more songs. As the evening progresses, I choose one song at a time–whatever I think would sound good after the song that’s currently playing. Or I might try to evoke a certain mood. Or thematically connect the songs together. Last night, DJ Gidget was hanging out in the chat room, using the nickname of “Red Dwarfed Queen”. So it occurred to me that The Corner Laughers have a song called “The Red Queen”, and since it was available at my fingertips, I was able to put that one on and have some fun with it.

Live radio. There’s nothing like it. And Woody Radio. There’s nothing like it either. Check out the fantastic programs produced by my amazing colleagues at Woody Radio. You’d be hard pressed to find a finer group of DJs.
