Take a bow (I hope you’re as embarrassed of us now as I am…..)

cool_kids_never_had_the_time.jpg

The final chapter of our three week run highlighting the best tracks of the decade.

I used this picture earlier this year for one of my shows, and I can’t think of a better epitaph to close out the second decade of the 21st century than this little bit of post millennium beat poetry.

Anyway, here’s to less embarrassment in the third decade.

Arrivederci Didier

no_penguins.jpg

 

 

I had such a good time with my friend from work, Didier, on the air last month, and really dug the tracks he played that I asked him to come back one last time before he heads back to Italy next week with some more.

Didier will never be forgotten, if only because he turned me onto Pinguini Tattici Nucleari (Tactical Nuclear Penguins), and as reasons to be remembered go, that’s gotta be one of the better ones.
