Thanks for tuning in today to WFMU where I will be playing mostly all brand new 2018 hip-hop - much of which was mixed while I lay in physical pain on a gurney (hence "The Gurney Mix") in Alta Bates Hospital in Berkeley CA earlier this week - after being rushed to ER and then been admitted into the hospital with a staph infection from an accident two + half weeks ago in which I fell from attic and injured myself in several places including fracturing my ankle and re-injuring my back from another accident exactly 3 weeks previously (#WTF?). I type this after just getting discharged from the hospital in Bay Area CA and hence am unable to be (as planned) back in NJ to do this show in person from the FMU studios. But my main man Joe Duffy (one of the many great peeps @ FMU that include Gio, Bronwyn B, Marcel M, Scott W, Michele and station mgr. Ken) kindly jumped in to help me and is back in the NJ studios of WFMU doing the board-op duties today. THANK U Joe "muthafukin" Duffy and everyone else who has helped me during this challenging time in my life which has been humbling but made me grateful for many things inc. true good selfless friends (notably Six Kutter, DJ ALF, Karen D/DJ Mickey, LS Monkey, Liz P + Joe Kemper) + hip-hop music which has aided me in taking my mind off the pain. THANK U - now fire up da dank and da volume and listen to the beat……W F M U know
