OMG it was BEYOND AWESOME to be back on Theory Radio today!

I used to have a 3 hour set on I think Tuesday evenings - I want to say it was 10 - 1 but I honestly don't remember any more. Things changed, my life got crazy, and I had to give it up. The network connection here wasn't good enough for a while, but it's better now, and finally a timeslot that I could do opened up. So now I'm every Wednesday from noon til 2pm (PST, yo!)

It's a really different time, doing it in the daytime, but I totally loved it and had a great time spinning! Jovino helped me get set up (including letting me use his computer to stream through, since my wi-fi is currently broken. I'm actually online through an ethernet cable - how retro is that?!)

The DJ before me was playing some seriously rootsy jazz, and I really didn't know how to follow that, so I just took it one track at a time. I think it went really well! I even managed to back-announce ALL of my tracks - a first for me! (I'm also in the process of reorganizing ALL my CDs, which is good overall but added a bit of an additional challenge as I'm not entirely sure where any given CD is just yet!) Overall it went GREAT and I had a blast!

if you tuned in, thanks for listening! if you missed it, I'll be on again next wednesday at noon, so come check me out!

so, here's my setlist:

Crazy - Nelly Furtado accoustic cover of Gnarls Barkley, recorded live for Radio One UK
(Station ID/etc)
Be Still, My Beating Heart - Randy Watson Exprience feat Nikki Jean cover of Sting
Scar - Missy Higgins
1980 - Estelle
To the Bass - Zimpala (rad Doors samples!)
Stories - Full Flava feat Carleen Anderson
(Station ID/back announcing)
Let Your Hair Down - Corinne Bailey Ray
Estelle - A Man Called Adam
Follow Your Bliss - B-52s
Another Day - 4 Hero feat Jill Scott
I Am the Black Gold of the Sun - Masters at Work feat Jocelyn Brown
Space Cowboy - Jamiroquai
Why I Came to California - Leon Ware
Love is the Message - MFSB (Tom Moulton mix - 11 mins of Disco Glory!)
Ease Out - Mid Air
(Station ID/back announcing/etc)
You Can't Hide (Your Love from Me) - David Joseph (Larry Levan mix)
Don't Make Me Wait - New York City Peech Boys
Make Me Believe in You - Patti Jo
Deetour - Karen Young
Heartache #9 - Delegation
Love Thang - First Choice
(Station ID/back announcing/etc)
Lost in Music - Sister Sledge (1984 Nile Rodgers remix)

Woo-hoo! I can hardly wait til next week!

In the meantime, I'll be spinning Eva Destruction's birthday party (Saturday night in the east bay) and Dr Sketchy's (Sunday from 4 - 7 at the Stud, SF)

Woot! :-D

I'm on every Wednesday from noon until 2pm... as well as the occasional live broadcast from parties or other events. (In that case, I'll do my best to post here ahead of time.)

Thank you! I'm actually on every Wednesday for two hours before tOaD, and I will do my best to remember to announce it (good advice, btw!) This was the first week so I should get better about promoting/reminding.

mucho smoocho to you and yr man, and the soon-to-be baby!
