Well, Andy Thomas and I -- with the help of Jon Solomon, who sat in with us for the second half of the show -- made it through the second edition of Mile Hi-Fidelity, our new local show on 101.5 FM. Aside from some novice board-op flubs on my part (rookie!) and the fact that I'm an insufferable dork (in general for sure, but especially on-air), the show, which airs from 8-10 p.m. every Wednesday, went rather well.
Thanks to the "mom switch" -- that internal device that prevents us from being profane in the company of mom -- we didn't drop any f-bombs, didn't create too much dead-air, played the commercials at all the right times (we think?) and, most importantly, we got to play a bunch of killer tunes. The guys from Yerkish also stopped by in advance of their CD release show this weekend and we talked to them about the now famous Terkish incident, gained some insight about the new record, Fear Conquers America, and played a few cuts from it. All in all, it was a hoot.
