Seriously, someone thought it was a good idea to let me co-host the KERA 90.1 FM music show (done by Paul Slavens) tonight, which is on from 7-10 PM. I get 9-10, probably.

I will be forcing upon Dallas/Ft.Worth listeners some of my favorite tunes, which happen to include some solo Jonathan and solo Thor and many friends of the Shearwater family.

The host, Paul, is really really great, and if you live in the area, feel free to call or email him with suggestions. If you give him CD's, they'll get played. Next week is the pledge drive, so we're hoping they don't cancel the only good music show on NPR in north texas.

I'm begging them to modernize... I want podcasts of the shows, live interviews, and sessions recorded for the show by good touring bands coming through town. I want there to be reasons for younger (than 50) people to listen, but the all-talk-radio format has zero appeal right now. In protest, I'm spinning my favorite tunes that I have never heard on the radio here!

Nope, it is broadcast through a stream, but not cached or stored in any way. This station is way behind the times.
