today's Theory set

I have so much I want to blog about, but have been way too busy to be parked in front of the lappy!!

However, being Wednesday, I sent another Theory Radio set out over the 'netwaves.

I rolled out of bed barely 10 minutes before I was supposed to go on. Nevermind that. I quickly brewed up some coffee and got ready to go. The first track popped into my head while I was setting up the computer and I just went from there.

Turns out it was midweek, midday happy hour! I rolled out a lounge set and had a blast. I love this music, and hadn't gotten to spin it anywhere but at weddings (where I have to play just the nicey lovey stuff) in soooo long. I used to have a monthly residency at The Cocktail Hour, a weekly lounge night at Club Deluxe (on Haight) back when I lived in walking distance from the club. Those were the days! I thought fondly of my Cocktail Hour days (and fellow lounge DJs, not to mention the bartender! Deluxe has the best bloodys - or at least it used to. I haven't been there in a while.)
