Happy Summer

Some of my best and worst memories of XCI are from the summer months.  On one hand you had the entire student center to yourself - for the most part.  You could spin records all day long (especially if the dj who was supposed to relieve you never showed up) and afterwards - instead of running to class, you could hit Squantz, Candlewood or a friend's house...

On the other hand... instead of sleeping in - or going to a friends house or swimming... you had to be on the air.

So then I played Holst's "Mars", followed by "The Last Broadcast from Corregidor" early on Sunday Morning, followed by something like Brian Eno's Apollo or Utopia...

I'll bet Pandora or Genius won't do that...

good times.

Summer radio, some'r not.
The air shifts got longer as the summer got hotter. At least thee was a fan to keep cool, as long as you didn't let it blow across the mic. But then it never was so hot at 7 AM.

The days before automation... The "Good ole days".

The FAN... I forgot the big broadcast fan.
