With Forty-Five...Plus One this Saturday, Alf from KTCL is giving his live DJ set a new spin
The always affable, exceptionally quick-witted Alf of KTCL's Locals Only show.
Speaking of new ways of doing old things, our old pal Alf, the longtime host of KTCL's Locals Only show, is getting his Big Gig pre-game on this Saturday night by taking a very well worn activity and giving it a new -- wait for it -- spin. Uh-huh, see what we did there? Spin, as in records. Get it? Clever, right? Anyhow, just when you think you've heard it all before, Alf's dreamed up a way to make the act of traditional deejaying a little more compelling. Keep reading to find out how.
Starting at 9 p.m. at Rooster & Moon Coffee Shop on 9th and Bannock, Alf will step behind the decks and play a set of instrumental 45s, and throughout the course of the set, he's going to have a different musician play along with whatever tune he's served up. He's calling it Forty-Five...Plus One.
The whole thing sounds pretty nifty, and he's enlisted a pretty impressive batch of folks to take part: Extra Kool, Jason Hoke (Epilogues), Brent Loveday (Reno Divorce), Andy Guerrero (Bop Skizzum), Joshua Trinidad (Go Star), Josh Lee (Eldren), Tavis Alley (Vices I Admire) and Ian Gilchrist (Jonny Barber). "This might end up being really cool," he says, "or it might just be a mess. But either way, I think it'll be fun to try."
