M&H 048: The Original DJ Skar. YES.

This is the truncated podcast version. You’ve noticed that we fade the music out for the podcasts; this is because neither WOOL-FM nor Monsters & Hamsters has the money for an on-demand music license. Since this is mainly a talk show, that’s not usually a big deal. But this episode is really about the music. We also archive our shows on a service called Mixcloud, which maintains a blanket license for long-form audio; to hear the whole show with the music, head over to mixcloud.com/monstersandhamsters/.


Confirmed — hot from Chicago, we’re gonna have Eric Johnson, originaldjskar aka The Original DJ Skar, with us this week! He’s bringing some vinyl, he’s bringing tales of glory… he’s just plain bringing it. YES.

Here’s the thing. This guy and his wife moved to the area recently, and came to the WOOL block party a couple weeks ago. Turns out they’re a couple of the nicest, most real people you’d want to meet. Turns out he loves and lives music. Turns out he’s a DJ. Turns out he wants to host a show on Black Sheep Radio. YES.

This will be the first of his three training sessions, and we’ll probably learn a thing or two from him. And we’ll probably learn a thing or two about him too — because he’s not just a trainee who probably doesn’t actually need any particular training, he’s our guest for the night. With any luck, we’re going to have him on board for the next three weeks running, and then he’ll graduate and get his own time slot. YES.

Did I say this? — YES. Tune in, meet the newest member of the flock. 91.5 FM in the broadcast area, or streaming worldwide online from www.wool.fm from 7 to 9 Eastern Standard. YES.
