Question for Kenzo or frequent listeners: On a recent program, there was heavy usage of the string part from "Street Hassle." I know Scharpling also used that sample earlier this year (and I'm not asking as some completist FOT, it was literally the only episode of TBS I heard all year--not a fan). Here's the question: coincidence? Or was one of you referencing the other?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm

Coincidence seems most likely. It's a pretty evocative part.

I thought TBS's wind-down stories were peculiar; a lot of press sounded as if Scharpling had invented the art of sound collage or something.

Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Mike: I do a live show live to an audience nearly every week. But I air multiple times in some weeks due to multi-station, and so some weeks I replay the same content after the live happening. But then other weeks, I can't physically be near a radio studio, and so I dig up recordings of past shows I especially liked. Nothing about the shows is ever pre-made. Has to be live, at least the first time.
