Fanatic! Thanks for checking out these notes. It’s yet another night of cool tunes, or at least ones Engineer X and I hope you like. Our December shows were put together in advance as I am out of the country for most of the month.

Where I am going to be, where I will be on the night of this broadcast might not be good to go for Internet. I think I might very well be off the grid for several days at a time.


I hope that you’re digging the music we are putting across for you. When I climb out of this trip and if I make it back to Los Angeles, I will start working on our January shows.

Interesting to program cold weather sets of music. For me, it’s the most challenging time of the year to gather songs for you. I know where I usually go listening-wise, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to be dragged into that maelstrom. Well, maybe a little. I’ll figure it out.

I have no idea what awaits me. I hope to have access to some music stores or music outlets of some kind. I will do my best to bring back some cool sounds and get them onto the show for you.

Thank you for listening to the show. We are almost at the end of another year. We have somehow survived over five years at KCRW and not been canned yet!

Dig the tunes and STAY FANATIC!!!
