It’s a Fact that I Live With: Transmission 350, 2017 June 24

00:0000:00

Artwork_AirTextureVolumeV.png Did you know that I am scared of round numbers? I have a basic problem with implied symmetry in my playlists, e.g. I would rather play 29 or 31 songs in my broadcast than 30. (I have long felt this way about LPs--except for classic New Order, and all the 4AD eps from the 80s, I'm not a big fan of "the same number of tracks on each side of the record," finding the 10-song album particularly distasteful. Weird, huh.) Not too long ago, I was okay with milestones, at least--100th program, 200th program, etc. Now anything that ends in zero seems like a convenient place to call time on this adventure, or for someone else to do so.

So it was fairly cool that #350 popped up randomly as a fill-in opportunity on which Junior wanted to begin a co-hosting escapade. Not only "no meaning" but "decent co-host": I will take that. Junior had not really found her confidence or her voice, though it starts to come on near the end of this broadcast, when she begins making Gayle references. There is really not much talking on this episode; not sure what is going on with me. Maybe just chilling in the studio with a good person, and/or low-key scrambling to throw up some decent segues. Either way, good process = good results.
