  1. Happy 6th anniversary. You are still my podcast mentor.

    Thanks chief. I remain one of your longest running fans.

    Good comments on nostalgia.

    I pretty much decided to cancel my annual October trip to NYC for a conference when I heard that the Vaselines were coming to Atlanta and conflicted with that trip.

    Oh, I remembered the other comment I meant to make …

    You criticize that NPR vocal style. I think it comes from having the headphone volume up too loud and as a result talking too softly (and thus having to goose the board slider up). Try it — turn up the volume and you’ll find you are speaking in lower, breathy tones. It took me a while at WREK to learn to keep the headphone volume LOW so my speech would be more … animated. A deep voice like mine (well, sometimes it’s deep) doesn’t carry over radio, so I needed to pay attention to these things so that listeners could actually hear me.

  5. Shannon says:

    Happy Anniversary. It’s been an odd day today, listening to you talk about anti-nostalgia, and on the same day running into Hazem for the first time in nearly 10 years.
