1: first show!

In playlist on 1 March 10 at 9:45 pm

Hi everyone! Thanks so much for tuning in to my first-ever show.  Even now that I am off-air, I am still pretty nervous (is this weird? It is weird). What a thrilling experience, though, holy gosh. As promised, here is tonight’s playlist:

Theme: None.  I was trained moments before going on the air, you guys. Allow me to gain my bearings and you shall then have your themes!

  1. Bruce Springsteen, “I’m Goin’ Down”
  2. Best Coast, “Something In The Way”
  3. The Books, “Take Time”
  4. The xx, “Islands”
  5. Dr. Dre, “Forgot about Dre (feat. Eminem)” [for my sisters, Alyson & Jessica, listening from Rockville]
  6. Elvis Presley, “Burning Love” [for Mom]
  7. Ecstatic Sunshine, “Swirling Hearts”
  8. Jubilee, “Dust”**
  9. The Minutemen, “My Heart and The Real World”
  10. The King Khan & BBQ Show, “Love You So”
  11. Daniel Johnston, “Lousy Weekend”
  12. The Magnetic Fields, “When You’re Old and Lonely”
  13. Cloud Nothings, “Can’t Stay Awake”
  14. M. Ward, “Poison Cup”
  15. Joni Mitchell, “All I Want”
  16. Elvis Costello, “Welcome to the Working Week” (Pathway Studio demo)
  17. The Tallest Man On Earth, “The Blizzard’s Never Seen the Desert Stands” [for my best friend, Adam, in Massachusetts]
  18. Queen, “Don’t Stop Me Now”

    * Other folks who got hollered at on the air: Jessica & Raja in Baltimore; Miriam in DC; Scott in Thurmont, MD; Katie in New York City; Daniel & Greg in Trenton, NJ; Aita in Baltimore; Jen in Lusby, MD; John in Baltimore; and the NINE on-campus listeners.  Heartwarmth!
    ** Jubilee is from DC, and they totally rule! One-half of the band is Bryan, one of my favorite people in the world; please check them out here!

As I briefly discussed on the show, here is a little more information for Baltimore listeners who are interested in joining the Baltimore Algebra Project on March 4th.  They’ll be meeting at Camden Yards at 10am, and will march to the Juvenile Detention Center (aka “Baby Bookings”) to demand that Governor Martin O’Malley divert $100 million toward education-based youth employments and Baltimore public schools, and away from the construction of three new youth jails.  To learn more, please contact Abeni Nazeer at (410) 533-5189 and visit the Baltimore Algebra Project’s website.  The Baltimore Algebra Project is a great group of high school activists from Baltimore who strive toward social justice in two ways: by tutoring their peers in subjects like math and English, and by advocating for education reform.  Please come out and support them if you can!

Thanks again for tuning in, babies!! I’ve got big plans for next week, so check back here in the near future.
