|22.10.22 15:27||We're in Day 5 of 14 and doin' fine! Today it'll be my turn to come on air and show you what you're contributing to and I've lined up our usual array of REAL HUMAN LISTENERS to tell you why they support Fresh Air. For now, I'm manning the pledge phones in Studio 5 during Caribbean Jam and will be back afterwards for Temposphere - even if you aren't able to contribute, you can still join our party at 90.3 locally and KFAI dot org EVERYWHERE on the Internet!|
|19.10.22 18:49||I think I just received a Senior discount. (I ain't complainin'!) (Goodwill)|
|18.10.22 21:53||It's not on Letterboxd, and technically it's not a movie, but:|
HEY WHAT (2021) ★★★½ Shane Donahue's visualisation of Low's album lands squarely between _Koyaanisqatsi_ and _The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld: Patterns and Textures_. It made me want to listen to the album again.
(Tagging the three people I follow on Letterboxed: Kelly, Scott and Mark, none of whom NEED to read this but let's be completists)
|18.10.22 11:57||As many of you may be aware, I volunteer, host AND serve on the Board of Directors of the best radio station in the Twin Cities and one of the best in the world. Fresh Air Radio is a nonprofit, non-commercial station, beholden to no corporate interests, providing voices to communities whose voices aren't always amplified elsewhere, serving the community in a dozen languages and even playing your requests when you ask us. In return, two or three times a year we remind the community that their support is an important part of what sustains us, keeping the lights on and the waves airing for 44 years and counting. If you are able, won't you please make a financial contribution and become a member - or continue your membership? I'm not a big fan of giving Facebook any financial details - if you Feel Like I Do*, you might want to head over to kfai.org to make a secure donation. But if you're more into expediency and HAVE given to a cause before here on the 'book, I wil!|
l certainly not complain if you do so again. Let me know if you would like this season's wacky photo of me (not posted online!) as a personal thank you.
|18.10.22 08:26||Happy Birthday to my brothers in radio and in life, DJ SLT, Tom Wollenberg and Thomas Wollenberg, all of whom have inexplicably locked down their pages despite the teeming masses greatly desiring a chance to pollute their Facebook walls with well wishes. Here's a member drive memory from back when we could sit in the same studio. Aw shit, gotta start another member drive campaign. Later.|
|18.10.22 08:13||Ah, ol' blue eyes and his Schlitz neck label. I love that kid. Where is that kid.|
|15.10.22 17:12||I'm playing requested RUSH right now! But don't worry - there'll be other requests after that. 90.3 / kfai dot org / KFAI/live|
|14.10.22 21:37||No, YOU'RE not wearing pants (Fine Line)|
|12.10.22 19:23||Don't stop the noise (The Parkway Theater)|
|12.10.22 09:32||RIP Angela Lansbury - only a year ago I noted you were still alive|
|11.10.22 16:26||Happy National Coming Out Day! While I remain cishet, I do try every day to be the best ally I can, love everyone, flirt with ALMOST everyone, respect pronouns (mine are he/him but I'll respond to others, too), fight heteronormativity and work to eliminate my own biases while also growing out my pretty pretty hair and occasionally trying out weird colours of nail polish. I may have more enby friends than binary friends at this point but it ain't usually my business and they certainly don't need to tell me if they don't wanna, but I'm happy to learn when they do and love folks no matter what! I hope you continue to feel safe with me and please, always call me out when I can do better. 🧷|

Sponsored content (which is to say an ad)
"Suggested for you"
Invite friends to Dark Energy!
Post from a blog I didn't Like and do not follow (?!)
Friend requests from my many Nigerian admirers
Reels (keeping in mind I have requested to "see this less" every time it's come up since they've been a thing)
*Steve again again
Only 16 of my over a thousand Facebook friends were represented.
Doin' just fine, Zuck!
|24.9.22 21:17||Hey DJ - Congrats on 5 years!!!!! (Protagonist Kitchen & Bar)|
|23.9.22 08:24||Had a fun nightmare last night where I had gone to some enormous local record store and found some really great stuff at outstanding prices but so many hours had gone by in the process that the next time I checked the time it was minutes before my show was supposed to start (why had I gone to a record store on a Saturday? I guess I thought I wouldn't be there that long) so not only did I not collect all my purchases - it seems that staff had been following me moving or refiling everything I was setting aside BUT I also couldn't figure out how to dial the correct digits on my phone to call Lynval and beg him to stay late until I could get in - after a seemingly endless look at the wrong numbers continuously being input into the phone and then deleted, I finally woke up whereupon I thought to myself: "is THIS what constitutes a nightmare for me these days?" So yeah, gonna take a late night DJ shift over at Dusty's tonight with Miguel...I will PROBABLY be early.|
|20.9.22 15:05||BREAKING NEWS: Gonna play some records in the big green booth at Dusty's Bar - NE MPLS Friday night with Miguel Vargas representing KFAI Vinyl Voices! We'll kick it off around 10 and go until close.|
