This weekend marked my return to stumbling my way through a radio show. I somehow convinced the incredible folks at Beasley Broadcast Group and the legendary WXTU to put me back on the radio, and let me try my hand at country. See you at a rodeo.
(Also, someone is going to have about 20 minutes of security camera footage of me trying to take that photo.)
I explain the history of this extremely creative and thought-provoking radio show feature in the clip, but this is from my final show on WYSP this past fall. I hadn’t done Dragonforce At Nine for years, but “brought it back” for the die-hards (my friend Taz) one last time.
The final days of 94WYSP have come to a conclusion in Philadelphia and I couldn’t be more proud of the way we sent her off the air. Even though the station’s last song (Metallica’s ‘Fade To Black’) hit zero on Friday afternoon, my night show ended the prior Wednesday night with a massive party in the studio (which spilled into the hallway and offices) and I couldn’t have written a better end to my contribution to those legendary call letters.
Check out my final show’s playlist, including the last Mandatory Metallica, and our final sing-along video (which includes YSP alumni and studio shots from YSP’s final minutes).
