Next Stop, Broadway......Roland Woodbe Host's The WFMU Listener Hour!

Well, I did it. I finally made the radio! An hour sure goes by fast when your spinnin records. I never woulda figured. Which explains why I brought so much what never got aired. But not to worry, my hunch is some of them will get to your ears even if I ain't the one on the mike callin'em out.
All in all I had a right nice time. They sure do keep it warm in that studio. Man, I was sweatin like a priest at a wiener roast all's through that set! I wanna apologize to any Swede's out there for makin mincemeat outta your neutral dialect durin that block've Scando bombs. My second language skills have gone to shit since I reentered the private sector.
Now I realize 9am on a Saturday ain't the primest hour to be diggin the warblings of the one's that got away. Hell, most of you's in New York City was probably just gettin home when I was playin them records. I hope I was of some help w/your entrance into Nod as you was countin all the hairs in a New Weird America beard in pursuit of beddy-bye. Sweet dreams & rest easy. Not to fret. It'll be archived.

Much thanks to Brian Turner & Bill Zurat for helpin 'n hangin. Also, big props to the WFMU in-house chef (didn't catch the name) for the divine lunch we feasted on after the broadcast (pictured above). He was hospitable enough to provide me w/the recipe which I have reprinted below along w/the particulars of today's set list. It servers 4!

I just put up the listener hour archive. I don't suppose you can do permalinks? If you click on the playlist for your show it goes right to your blog. If you want any changes to the description (I can only add a half a sentence, but I can edit it) you can write me at rebecca usual rest of fmu address.

I did find the permalink finally. Too bad listners won't see the yummy clown right away unless they click on the title at the top.
