Here’s a guy who can’t even be bothered to give his show a proper name.

Another Tuesday night, and another DJ Mike “Show With No Name”. During the show, I mused about the show, which shall remain nameless–literally–having no name. But that’s part of the charm. I purposely didn’t name this show. I’ve named my other radio shows in the past, giving them names such as “Twirl”, or “The California Diner”. But if you name the show, you’re stuck with just one name, and all that it implies. So this was my experiment: give it no name, and let people’s imaginations run wild. I just say “Woody Radio” a lot during my show, because I really, really like the station’s name, and let the music do the talking.

Is it working? Well, 47 shows in, and I still don’t know. So I cover my tracks with a lot of music, just to make up for any lack of creativity in naming the show. I don’t think people have caught on to this ruse yet, so I’ll probably just keep going like this for a while, until somebody says something.

So here’s how you can help. If you didn’t manage to listen live, can you give a listen to at least a little bit of this replay? You’ll hear a whole bunch of brand new 2019 music. There’s also bands in the mix with some offbeat names–Heroes of Toolik, Ass Ponys, and Librarians with Hickeys come to mind–and some artists with fake names (you’ll just have to listen to figure that one out). You’ll quickly realize that at least somebody out there knows how to name something. But do listen, as this week’s show really was a full-on feast for the ears.

And stay with Woody Radio. There are dozens of DJs here who really take the time to put some great sets of music together for you. It’s like a 24/7 mixtape. Enjoy!
