You can hear the raspiness in the DJ’s voice from breathing in the smoke of a whole state on fire. This is not the suburban grill glaze I asked for! Where is my Tom Collins? Hiding out in the basement (yeah, like we have those in California) Mr. DJ unearths a cache of nineties/noughties CDs and explores the sounds encoded within. What emerges is an alternate portrait of an era and a little bit of what followed it. Guest narration from the hard working heroes at Cal Fire.
Episode 9 of the Suburban Dance Radio show on 92.5 KOWS FM Santa Rosa, California. Airs every Tuesday at 8pm Pacific time. We are now a weekly experience. Keep it locked.
