Well, here it is: a new year. We kicked off the 8:00 hour with Quantic’s version of Feelin’ Good with Alice Russell in the lead, singing to us, it’s a new dawn, of a new day, of a new life… Is it for you? Are you feelin’ good? It’s all right, either way. I resolve to listen to more music, and keep the best stuff coming on Tuesday mornings. And to listen to you if I’m not doing my job.
This is important if you actually listen to this show: Radio Rumpus Room is being preempted this week, Jan. 9, for somebody’s live broadcast, BUTONLYTHEFIRSTHALFHOUR’S WORTH. We are going to utilized the last half of this abbreviated timeslot to do a 30 minute tribute to one of the greatest songs of all time: Stan Jones’ Ghost Riders In The Sky. Lotsa wildly different versions of this one; we guarantee this’ll hold your interest!
Update on our still-AWOL 128 kbps MP3 archives: We remain one of a handful of KFAI shows that are not being archived in this higher-quality format. The requsted fix requires the station engineer (currently on a long holiday hiatus) and we’ve been told we’re on the list. Say your prayers — it couldn’t hurt!
