Theme: Baseball and blip.fm
|I was happy with my first non-CKMS podcast, however I am still working out some of the bugs in my system. Thus I apologize for any uneven levels, blowing into the microphone, and songs playing on while I was talking. |
As for the show, Derek sent me a song by The baseball project, an album of songs about baseball put together by Steve Wynn and Scott McCaughey. The song I played, "The Yankee Flipper", chronicles the time that Jack McDowell gave the finger to the New York fans and the events that lead up to that moment.

I also did a set of songs that I found out about through the website blip.fm , where people recommend songs (or "'blip" them) along with short comments on the songs. I played a few songs from two of my favourite DJs on blip, Seeshell and VanillaJ, unfortunately you have to sign up as a DJ in order to see their picks, but it is free and quick.
One of reasons that I have to go on with the show is my reaction when I heard about the passing of Isaac Hayes, the first thing I thought was "I should play an Isaac Hayes song on my next show".
