Level the Vibes (WMWC): April 15, 1998

November 13, 2011 – 8:17 pm

During my senior year of college, my radio show was a three-hour show titled “Return to the Attic,” which referred back to my first radio show as well as the attic space the radio station was housed in at the time. This show was my second-to-last episode of my college tenure. Rather than go freeform, I decided to do an all-reggae show. I titled it “Level the Vibes,” which was the reggae show I hosted a few years previous (the title itself an obvious reference to Half Pint).

I run through sets of roots and lovers rock, dub, dancehall, and hip-hop reggae and am joined in studio by my then-girlfriend (now-wife) Huyen, Chevy, Donny, and Thuy. At one point late in the show, I drop a few radio ads over dub tracks to spice things up a bit.

This is one of my favorite shows to go back and listen to because I spun strictly music I loved (rather than trying to focus on new releases, etc.), had friends in the studio with me for much of the show, and was clearly having fun. Good times, good times.

  2. Laze,

    Nice to hear your old Radio show. Pretty cool.

    I should see if I got tapes of my old Show from Techwood Radio would be pretty cool.
