I don't know where you are in the world or what time of day you are listening to this show but right now, for me, it is a rainy Saturday afternoon in San Diego.
It doesn't rain often in San Diego but it's perfect because it fits my mood and my mood is a foul mood. No particular reason for it. Just the usual hassle of dealing with a quotidian life. But putting today's show put me in a better mood.
You know, usually I have to wade through a lot of crap to find tracks that I think are worth listening to on solipsistic NATION. The last few weeks have been remarkable because I've come across a lot of great music. More so than usual.
In a lot of way today's show reminds me of my days spinning at WMFO. I'd come in 45-60 minutes before my show, grab a stack of new albums and CDs I had pulled and quickly scan through them in one of our spare studios. Some how I'd manage to hang a show together from all the songs that I felt were listening to.
