Hey, anyone out there? Hi from the DJ; trying to get the groove going.
Just tuned in, enjoying the Kottarashky very much!
Shout out to Jersey City (native here, now in the southwest).
And yes your mic was on.
Just checking in to say great tunes, am enjoying very much. Thank you
Great set so far. Perfect sounds for the moment.
First time listening. Wonderful stuff. Thanks!
Some fun, Steve. The Subdudes recorded a great version of Big Chief 20 years ago. Enjoyed the new Tom Jones; he keeps going back to country music.
i'm here cause Frank Zappa would have wanted it that way
Thanks for the nice comments. I'm not used to this late night slot but I like it. Hope to be back sometime. I love to hear from listeners: email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with comments, suggestions, jokes.
