When one does a Tuesday night radio show, one observes the Tuesday night dress codes.
This was my so-called triumphant return to radio! I’d been on vacation for over a week, and off the air for a couple of weeks. Yes, I was observing radio silence. But I couldn’t wait to get back on the air. As the old saying goes, I was tanned, rested and ready. (Trivia question: where does that expression come from?)

But rock ‘n’ roll never sleeps, and in that fortnight, I gathered up a whole bunch of new 2019 music for you, and we heard some of it on the show this week. New music from the likes of The Armoires, The New Duncan Imperials, David Brookings & The Average Lookings, Karen Haglof, Leslie Pereira & The Lazy Heroes, Girls On Grass, and Diplomats Of Solid Sound. Sheesh, what a treasure trove! And of course, I spun a whole lot of other music, both indie and not-so-indie, and some 50 years old. I guess when you miss some radio, you come back and play like your life depends on it. In some ways, it really does–this music is what I live for.

But let’s not get too serious here. This was a fun mix of music, and we even played a few songs that could be considered just plain “wrong”–but hilarious (and for those of you who provided those songs–you know who you are!).

Most noteworthy: they let me back on. No, Gidget didn’t change the locks to the studio door on me while I was gone, so there’s that. One tiny bit of Tuesday night radio controversy, however: DJ Mac, when he found out that I was wearing my Bass shoes instead of my Chucks right before showtime, playfully “threatened” me with not yielding the microphone to me until I put on my Chucks. Hey–we have a Tuesday night dress code, and everybody needs to step up and do their part.

So give a listen to this week’s show. The music on it is stellar.
