Anyway. This other friend I was talking about, he also moved halfway around the world (literally!), and it was nice to hear from him. We both used to work at the same company and also used to spin tracks at the same radio station (which has now become a totally sucky NPR station -- bleh!). For some reason, I had the idea to Google myself and the name of my show and see if anyone out there actually remembered it, other than me and the people I can count on both hands... ok, one hand... And the only hit I got (hey, this was back in 1998 that I did my last show, give a girl a break!), was from Steve Koepke's The List. For those outside of my
One thing that surprised me, though, is that in my last listing on The List (that's me, Attitude Check with Raven at the bottom under Radio Shows; my friends Sid and Melissa were on there, too), there were far more punk-related shows on the air than there are now. Bummer.
P.S. One of the funny things I remembered about my show is that when I first got started on the air, I did a show with a friend of mine from Sunday mornings midnight to (I think) 5:00 a.m. Yeah, we're talking "Big Gulp-sized cups of coffee" nights. The show on after ours was a gospel show, and she'd always start off by saying, "Come out of the darkeness, and into the light..." and I'd be so insulted, as though we were the darkeness of which she spoke! Even though I knew she was being literal and not metaphorical... then again... And? I had the longest-running late-night show on that station ever. I'm quite proud of that fact! So I guess someone was listening, after all.
