MechaRadio: Music Box A little soul-jazz to start, maybe some other stuff a little later. Please enjoy.
very nice - I was just about to put on a Hammond Jazz mix while I got ready this morning, but you're way ahead of me. Two songs in - thumbs up!

Glad you're digging it, Slack. I'll probably keep going for another hour or so.

The Whelk has a show scheduled at noon, but I'm not sure if that's EST or CST.

Update: if I'm reading the calendar correctly, which is by no means a certainty, The Whelk's on at noon CST/1 pm EST.

Again - very cool! You're hitting just the style I like. I just discovered Charles Earland last year and have become a big fan.

Awesome sounds.

And yeah 1pm EST.

Hey, anyone up for after me? Lets make T-Day A Total Streaming Day (I can work up extra sets on the fly if need be).

Hiya, Whelk! I was just thinking about keeping it going right up until the start of your show. That'll be four or five straight hours, at least.

Just got home from a quick shift up at the clinic. Listening in while checking internetty stuff. Nice music for the mood!

Yay! I can hold out for another hour after my slot or if someone could take the baton, that would be great. I'm pretty much free til the evening.

(I'm pondering if it would be unethical to make a MeTa post about an all-day music spree. It probably would be).

also, really enjoying the set so far!

Thanks box. I gotta split (jump in the shower and take my dog for a walk) but I enjoyed your sexy, smooth sounds.
