Tonight marks the 100th show (I think) since I first moved in, around late October, 2009. Kind of a big deal, if you ask me, so I thought I’d do something special to celebrate.
At first, I tried to get Prince to make a guest appearance, but that didn’t really work out. He actually figured out a way to sue me for asking him, directly, and is trying to have me imprisoned for 10 years or pay a fine of $20,000. His lawyers mentioned something about the price of looking Prince directly in the eye. So… no Prince in the studio. Sorry.
My second thought was to have someone local in the studio. That seems a lot more do-able. However, things have been a little hectic outside of the studio, so I really haven’t been able to dedicate that much time.
Finally, I realized that the best thing I could do is trust my instincts and have a good time.
Tonight’s show will not only have a pretty cool theme, but will be in a bit of a different format than usual. I don’t want to give anything away, just yet, but I’ll assure you that it will be all good – I dare say the best show yet.
Tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 and keep up with me on Tweeter for updates and cool treats like music videos, etc., during the show. Can’t wait for this one. It’s going to be lots of fun!
