Another post to cap off this space. Since the last show I've been figuring out my moving and job situations in New York. See the links below to listen to most of the last episode (missed some at the tail end). Some call ins from friends and shout outs to associates sprinkled throughout.
I'm still in Boston once or twice a month alongside Ryan Durkin at Zuzu for Solid some Fridays. I'll also be DJing alongside Big Digits, Juiceboxx and friends at Goodlife this coming Sunday (fb link here).
I wanna thank everyone who's been involved with the show, either listening, calling, cohosting, subbing, or even just reading this blog thanks a bunch. Also a very special thanks to the WZBC eboard, past and present, Judy Schwartz long time zbc faculty advisor, Doug and Paul of Pinwheels of your mind and Jet from Stare Into the Lake Astonished the two shows that preceded me all these years.
A big thanks also to all those who have inspired my DJ career outside the station. I've always been a big fan of what a lot of people in town do and the Ghostdad brand certainly wouldn't be the same without places like the Milky Way and Zuzu, as well as staples like Beat Research at Enormous Room (big ups Wayne and Flack) and everyone who puts in time making the Good Life an interesting venue for music. Big thanks to everone I've DJed alongside over the years I hope to keep linking with you!
I'll be teaching some aftershool classes in New York similar to the work I did at the ICA for those familair. I'll also be throwing my creative energy into more Fully Fitted activity. Be sure to watch that space to pick up where this blog leaves off. Been working on some secret sauce in the background with Devlin and Alexchange and all will be revelaed in due time...
Till then, see me in New York, or Boston, or somewhere inbetween!
Sorry for being out of touch through the usual holiday gap and beyond. There have been lots of changes for me personally in the last few weeks that have resulted in some serious back and forth between New York and Boston.
Details aside, my story is typical. I've long been planning a shift to New York for a variety of job and family related reasons and the iron has been getting undeniably hot over the past 6 months or so. I've loved my time here in Boston. I think I've been able to cut my teeth in radio and DJing in a way I wouldn't have been able to anywhere else.
I hate to consider New York to be across some sort of uncrossable ocean I can never return from. I'd love to stay involved in DJing here whenever possible. For now I'll be keeping my bi-monthly residency with Ryan Durkin at Zuzu every 2nd and 4th Friday. But it doesn't appear my work schedule will allow mid week commutes up to hold down a spot on WZBC. And so it's with a heavy heart that I announce the last ever Mofo Radio will take place this Wednesday Jan. 20th at 10pm on WZBC.
Join me then. May have some guests in tow. Call ins definitely a must and I'll have a large list of thank yous to be read on air and to appear on this blog after the broadcast. Till then...
Awesome show this past week. These three brought the heat respectively and had more in common then we really knew. It was a cosmic connection to say the least and one special night of radio. Mostly accurate playlist here. Listen to the audio below:
Josh Dunn kicked it off with some dubbed out disco and weird vinyl digs. Come to find out in addition to the work Josh does with Wax Poetics, he's also the curator the of the well designed and content rich 100 Liousines, one of my fave blogs for some time now. Hoping to hear more from Josh in the future!
Bennet4$enate is no stranger to the airwaves, having put in appearances on WNYU's A Downtown Affair, and Broken Tape Decks on WFMU. He busted out some classic disco and dance jams along with some crazy youtube digs. Straight hits from Bangs, Tonetweakers, and PSA's on for the upcoming job fair holler! Watch the Serious Business blog for updates on that crew and Bennett's new nights blasting off at the new Knitting Factory in Brooklyn.
Sobs finished us off with hip hop set heavy on the east coast flavors. He's put out a mixtape bigging up his east coast journey which I've just linked too over at Fully Fitted. He's down in New York this week so hit up his myspace for all the dates and locals. Don't miss him while he's in the belly!
Thanks again to these guys for coming out. It was great times I'd sit in a room and wear parkas with these dudes any day! I'm gonna be gone for the holiday but back soon after so see me on the next.
This coming week, a mind meld of mind melds. Bennet4$enate and Josh Dunn both formerly of Wax Poetics in the building, and the big Texan himself Sober repping Decade Clothing as well as Shake Em Down visual coordinator (his latest offering aint half bad).
All established DJ's themselves as well as procurors of records, mags, art direction, music, art and illustration, the topics and tunes might fly all over. Get the full rundown on these dudes, the dirt, and the live dates this coming Wednesday!
Two weeks ago was a doozy. Both Evaready and Beat Perv live DJing on the air. Gems dropping all over the place. Took me a while to get this up here as per usual. Forgive the dropouts/changes in audio levels form the top we were battling some bad cables starting out. Playlist is also gonna have to wait it's lost in Serato somewhere!
As stated in the program these guys are starting to infultrate the Boston area so be sure to check their respective links to find out what they have upcoming. If all your local attempts fail hit up Red Door in Portsmouth to catch one of their many residencies there.
Back no the air this Wed eve. Maybe with some secret special guests in tow? I'll keep ya updated...
