DiscoEx Archive: More Radio From the Vault: The Porno Show - Cool with the FCC, but NSFW

Five years ago, while a radio DJ at KFJC (89.7 FM in the San Francisco Bay Area, the best station on the planet for music nerds, seriously), fellow DJ Trinity and I perpetrated a little prank on the unprepared ears of the Saturday afternoon listening audience. It was “freak week”, which is a station tradition wherein DJ’s experiment with format, boundaries and ideas instead of doing their regular shows. Trinity and I took the “freak” to a new level. At noon that Saturday, after the family-oriented entertainment of Bob Emmet’s highly regarded Norman Bates Memorial Soundtrack show, we dove that station directly into the gutter by playing over an hour of porno music.

Denon DJX-1500, meet my record collection. Records, meet your remaker. thx to my loving wife, brother and parents.

DiscoEx Archive: Catchin' Up - The Setlists from Astralab

I had intended to record with the new KCSC portable flash recorder, but to my chagrin the cheapskates at Marantz ship it with a whopping 64MB of storage, which would basically get me about an hour of one set. Symbio may have gotten the second set, though, so stay chooned.
