DJ Mike
Oh. This guy again.

You know how some shows, in an effort to be dramatic, save the “good songs” for right before the commercial break, or for the end of the show? Not me. I played only good songs on last night’s show. You see, at Woody Radio, we have no commercial breaks, and on Tuesday nights, I have no defined ending to my show. I go at least 3 hours, and then do what we call “overtime”. Gidget and Boris literally encourage me to just be on the air, playing music, for as long as I want.

So herein lies the problem: without these boundaries, I don’t know when I’m supposed to be playing the bad, mediocre, and so-so music. So I just play the good stuff, and that way, it’s a whole lot less confusing for me.

The Fortune Cookie Report, 2/26/2019

Last week, I accidentally created a new feature for the show: The Fortune Cookie Report. Basically, I open up and eat a fortune cookie on the air, and read the fortune out loud, and then make some hopefully pithy remark about it, right before getting back into the music. So I did the same this week, and I’ve decided that whatever fortune I get, if you’re listening to the show, it’s your fortune too.

Oh–and the great 2019 music keeps rolling in, so I’m rolling it out to you. It’s shaping up to be a pretty nice year for music so far.

Do me–and yourself–a favor. Click the audio link below, and listen to at least a part of this great music. I think you’ll find some new sounds that you love.
