Sounds from the Attic: October 18, 1994 (premiere episode)

March 22, 2016 – 8:55 am

Growing up, I always wanted to DJ on the radio, so when I had a chance to do so at college, I jumped on it immediately. This episode is the first episode I DJed during my freshman year at Mary Washington College on 540 AM WMWC. I had an upperclass co-host for the first half of the year (hi, Matt!) who had a pretty different musical sensibility, but we complimented each other relatively well, I suppose.

It was clearly my first show as I sounded nervous, flubbed some mixes, and forgot to turn Matt’s mic on during our first airbreak. I even get the name of the show wrong at one point.

(Also, it always struck me as funny that the last track from the previous DJ leading into my first show was Kid Rock’s “Balls In Your Mouth” when he was in his full Esham mode.)
