Got <10 mins? Back in “the day” we used to do airchecks – both as a way of critique and for possible job openings. In those days it was less about the music and more about the show – how well the dj did, since the music was largely someone else’s ultimate responsibility and what we really wanted to focus on was the way the dj presented things.
As I was driving around reminiscing on that subject a few days ago it occurred to me to do that for you this week – give you an aircheck of sorts, but one more focused on the music than on what I might have to say – though I included some of that for glue and continuity. I hope it’s enough to encourage you to listen to the weekly broadcasts aired around the state.
If you haven’t heard yet, you can now hear the Colorado Sound every Sunday morning at 10AM on Radio 94.9 Colorado.
