DJ for a day

cat scratch padWell, this should be interesting.  I’ve never done a radio show as a DJ before, but I’ll be giving it a spin – sorry – this Friday, July 10th, from 12-2 pm eastern time on WXDU Durham, which you can stream online at  It’s a great station – usually.  I’m sure it’ll go back to being great by the time Polyphonic Perversity rolls around from 12-2 pm on Sunday.

In the meantime:  Greece Lightning!!!!
