A Playlist for 2008: Weirdoes & Movie Stars: Bazooka Goes Bonkers In the O-EIGHT
Bazooka Bear Sound Cathedral
My show is usually made up of 6 segments. These include a collage portion, a focus on my vinyl and cassette collection, a segment dedicated to bands I'm discovering online, and selections from our playlist at CFBX. Whether I'm stressing over doing the live collage portion, or digging for new artists on "myspace" I always try to keep things a little beyond my comfort zone. It has worked out pretty well and I'm even more excited to be doing the show now than when I started three years ago.
