Rocket 88 : Tuesday : 7-10 a.m.

Planning an interesting personal experiment this coming Tuesday, as Darren Snow’s asked me to fill-in for him on his long-running KDHX morning show, “Rocket 88.” The show airs from 7 – 10 a.m., a timeframe with which I’m only intimately familiar with, in part. Specifically, the latter part. Living close to the station, though, I figure that a 6:47 alarm and some fast-actin’ green tea should have have me on the decks by 7:01, no problem. Sure.

Actually, I’m thinking that I might need to spend a bit more time prepping the show than the normal, let’s say, “Silver Tray.”

Plan on dipping into that historical curiosity of trip-hop-pop. To wit, the following cut by Dubstar, “Stars,” a fave of the era and something I’d want to listen to at (GULP!) 7:13 a.m.

Wish me luck. Enjoy this in the meantime, you easy lovers.

  1. I’d listen online but your 7:00 a.m. is my 5:00 a.m., and while I like to be supportive, I like to sleep too. Good luck making it — I’ll catch you on the archived stream 🙂

  2. I’m afraid to listen to stream. During the first “talk break,” a turntable didn’t fire, the computer screen was on the wrong tab and I completely forgot what I’d played. Probably the worst radio moment in station history. Oh, 7:10s and me don’t match! After that, smoother sailing. An interesting experiment.
