I promised to put these up, like, forever ago. The first one, I woke up, freaked out, biked to the station, pulled about twenty CDs off the shelf, played music that my super hip music directors recommended on their recent emails. I was unprepared... and the show ruled. So, if you find some amazing new… Continue reading they seem wild.
Yesterday was just a bit of a rough one, from begining to end. Thank goodness I have loves to sit with when nothing else besides just sitting is okay.

I did my radio show with my little brother [Ryland] this morning. It was so great. We laughed. We panicked. He answered the phone... - Hello? KHML... - No, Ryland... KHOL! We remembered our roots.
