Big thanks to everyone for listening, and those of you who took the time to comment and call! Loved the call appreciating that I play music from the 21st station on the folk/classical channel, and another appreciating the relevance of some of the song choices – so great that people are engaged! A breath of fresh air, aww! I’ve really enjoyed listening to music with you, and putting together a mix of music that hopefully introduced folks to some music they might not have heard before. It’s been your interest and support that makes us listener-powered community radio here at KZYX&Z ❤

One deer in the broad daylight coming over. And I'm listening to the show after mine, The Latin Alternative, play some awesome covers! Perfect end to a wonderful evening.

  1. anticipation! hope you have time to squeeze in everything you want.

  2. eek – sorry its ‘el fin’! too much to do?

    • Thanks, Annie, it’s not without regret for me as well – it’s been a great five years! Yes, with my new job that’s already sent me a bunch of prep work and getting ready to leave, I’m slowly wrapping up what I’ve been doing here.

      I appreciate your support, thanks!

  3. Bummer! Where ya going?

  4. Enjoy your next chapter. Particulary enjoyed Cat Power.

  5. a wonderful last Amplified Mixtape, and thanks for the very apropos “Let’s Get Out Of This Country” – a fitting and fond farewell. (and yes, the Elliot Smith song, too!). I will miss you in your radio incarnation. Has it been five years?!

  6. Belated thanks for a great final show, which left me with lots to listen for (in fact the very next day I watched a movie that featured a generous dollop of St. Etienne in the soundtrack). “I Will Dare” is somehow the mix-tapiest song ever in my estimation, so it was lovely to hear in your send-off. Good luck & happy trails.

    • Isn’t it strange and wonderful how songs/bands tend to start showing up once we’ve heard them. And I definitely agree on The Replacements, they always belong on a mix tape, and in fact, one of my favorite music exchanges is done on a ‘mats internet mailing list, Skyway.

      Thanks for listening, take care!
