Breakfast Dub

September 15th, 2010

I quit doing modbit, and started another show, called Breakfast Dub, Wednesday mornings 6-9AM. Check out the website:

http://www.breakfastdub.com/

Don’t spin a lot of contemporary classical, but should you request it, then I will!

last modbit show…

August 22nd, 2010

I did the last modbit show on Aug. 21st 2010. The show may come back some day but for now it’s toast. I just have too many other things going on in my life and other interests, that I am unable to keep up with the integrity of the show to my satisfaction. To all the listeners, thanks for tuning in and your interesting in the show, it’s been a pleasure bring you modbit for the last 3 years. I’m moving to a different time slot at the radio station, a morning program (6-9AM Wednesday mornings Central Time) and this program will have a different format, in that I will be able to spin all kinds of music, and they’ll be a mix of locally produced public affairs programs with other news related drop ins. I will also spin experimental music on this show, so keep an eye out for it if you are interest. You can listen to WEFT Champaign anytime via the web stream here: http://weft.org/stream. I will record my new show and post mp3′s and playlists to a new blog for the show when it starts. I’ll post a link here when it’s ready.
