I've been living under a rock since 1986, but I'll catch up on all the new music soon. The thing to know about me is that I have a truly awful memory. I don't remember band names. When I see the name of a band, I don't remember what they sound like, or what that song by them was that I liked a whole lot. So every time I prep for a show, I'm coming in cold. I pick albums at random and listen to songs off them at random, and hope I can find something I like enough to share with my listeners. On top of that, I'm a contrarian. I try to pick bands that haven't got much airplay in a while, and the albums by them that haven't got much airplay, and the songs on those that have been neglected by my fellow programmers. Sometimes the reason they didn't get played is because they are annoying garbage and I don't play them either. But lots of times I find gold.
