last night

From 6/16 Show
Just wanted to get a quick playlist up. Nothing too special tonight, except that I helped the Mashall's Office (next door to the radio) test their new breathalyzer machine. I passed!

Heart it Races x3

6/9 Show
I rather enjoyed last night's show. Plenty of new music in a mix that started out very mellow and acoustic, then got some country influence, followed by a nice dose of indie rockers and a finish of techno remixes. The trio of "Heart it Races" tracks was a highlight (the original by Architecture in Helsinki, then Esau Mwamwaya's cover, then Dr. Dog's cover). I really don't like turning down caller's requests, but when they select "Laffy Taffy" by D4L, I kind of have to.

A-Z, Take Three

6/2 Show
Inspired my Music Director Erin Roberts' show earlier in the day, I decided to trot out the A-Z format for a third take. My goal was to squeeze in as many bands that are/were playing upcoming concerts as I could, and I think I succeeded.

I am now also uploading playlist on the KBUT.org website. Go here and click on "View Grant's Playlists". Next Monday I am going to try and update the playlist live during the show, so you can refer to the KBUT website from 10:30pm-12:30am MT to see what song I am playing at that particular moment.

5/29 Show
May 29th's radio show was somewhat of a special occasion, as my brother Kyle and his friend Tito were in Crested Butte and in the KBUT studio. They both did a wonderful job reading PSAs when called upon, and several of the songs below were their requests. Thanks to all my friends who also stopped by that evening. At first I thought it wasn't such a great show, but looking back there were many memorable moments. Most notably, the musical hindenberg that is Weezer's "The Greatest Man That Ever Lived". The brief and terrible snippet of Natalie Portman's Shaved Head's "Beard Lust" provided many laughs (although I don't recommend actually listening to the song).
