Great to be back with you for another show. Reconnecting in NYC was the key but being home in AZ makes the listening times much easier. Cheers. :)

Yeah that Kane track was a smokin highlight so far.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/20/19 9:37pm Julie M:

I liked the Jonathan Kane track too, and I thought it was a particularly good transition from the Fallen Leaves track, maybe it's just me. I always listen for and appreciate a good DJ mix.

Twice during the marathon I won prizes and just got a notification of an inbound package from Jersey City but sadly it was not WFMU gold but instead Trance Syndicate's 1990 comp LOVE & NAPALM, VOL. 1 I'd elsewhere gotten. Anxious to see this years wlWFMU goodies! Great Job during the drive man

hey Yeti Bob, hey SteveL. Not a lot to say here either. Douglas in Dallas, that would be a pretty quick turnaround for your WFMU prizes but they'll be there at some point! Thanks for your support.

EFD, what do you think about inviting Pearl Harbor & The Explosions on your show to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of their debut album ? It's being reissued next month.

Hiya Ike-ers! Me love you long time! Fun hangin' Friday night at Daniel Blumin... I was very hungover Saturday. Oops.
