*Bold indicates jams of the week.
This weeks show was fairly doomed, but ended up being very good, not to brag or anything. First things first, Lost was having its season finale halfway through my show. Apparently, It was to be the TV event of the decade, a pretty bold claim considering we’re only 5 months into it. I had to bid the followers adieu halfway through the show. Secondly, the beloved chatbox on the KWVA webstation was not working.
I powered on through it all though. Beta Collide put out a wicked new minute-long single about some article about the music industry. It won the jam of the week with its epic bass and cartoonish vocals. However, Twilight in Turkey by Raymond Scott kept coming up on shuffle on my iPod. It is a pretty epic song in its own right, and I think it would be sweet to perform it in a small ensemble setting for something music major related. That’s why I decided to have two jams this week.
Other than that it was just a regular Cleveland show, with some interesting layering and ending with a very random track. I felt especially proud of what I did with the DJ Shadow track as well as how I did with mixing into the Prodigy track. The Carnival Of Venice is embedded into my subconscious at this point from constant practicing.
That was how the Cleveland Show went down. If you’re feeling down about the loss of Lost, tune in next Sunday at 6PM (PST) to KWVA (www.kwvaradio.org) and dance the bad emotions away. As always, Feel free to leave me a message with any requests as I prepare for next week.
