DJ Mike’s show is always on Taco Tuesday.
Ok, let’s cut right to the chase. We are 60 episodes old now. The management at Woody Radio continues to leave me unsupervised on Tuesday nights, and I run roughshod all over the airwaves. I play weird segues. I mix sounds together that aren’t traditionally heard on radio. I play bands with funny names (if you don’t believe me on that one, just glance at the playlist below). I don’t do jingles, commercials, or station breaks. I sometimes mess up and say the wrong thing (I even say the right thing sometimes, too, just for the record!).

So where is the Woody Radio HR Department when you need them? The last time they were seen was when they dropped off the Woody Radio employee handbook to the station. And even that is a sham. It’s not so much a handbook as it is a pamphlet. And not even a pamphlet–it’s really just a single sheet of paper on it, which simply says “we make you rock hard”. So I try to follow that lone rule to the best of my ability.

Honestly, we don’t really have a lot of rules. The main rules, aside from the one mentioned above, are pretty much play whatever music you want, and just be yourself. I can honestly say that all of the Woody Radio DJs, including myself, do exactly that. But it’s not hard when there’s so much great indie music out there.

This week, we heard new tracks from Leslie Pereira & The Lazy Heroes, Salt (featuring Anton Barbeau), David Brookings & The Average Lookings, The Bobbleheads, 50 Watt Heavy, Gretchen’s Wheel, R. Stevie Moore, Jeff Heiskell, Starbelly, JonEmery, The Decibels, and an old one, but new to us, from Pezband.

I hope you can listen to at least some of this week’s show.
