What Planet Is This?! Has One Show Left!

What Planet Is This?! Last Show Event Page

It hasn’t been an easy decision to make, but the time has come to be moving on. After six solid years on the air, I’ve decided to give What Planet Is This?! a rest.

I love doing the show! It’s always a welcome reprieve in my week. That said, my life is crazy busy. I mean way too crazy busy. I’ve been putting in 18-20-hour days for years now, and I just can’t handle it anymore, so I’m cutting down on everything for the time being – even things I love doing.

Couple this with the impending doom of winter, and bearing in mind I’m a winter busser, the thought of waiting around for transfers in -1000° for another year is just not calling to me, this time around.

It is my hope to maybe, one day, pick up the show again, at some evening time slot. I get the feeling I’ll miss spinning my jazz records on the air after a while.

In the meantime, if you feel the loss of my voice on the radio is too much to bear, rest assured that I intend to continue co-hosting my late-night CJTR program, Operation Manatee (operationmanatee.ninja). You should check it out, if you’re into staying up late and listening to noisy things, as I am.

As for WPIT?!, you have one chance left. Be sure to tune in next Wednesday from 4:00 to 6:00. I’m pulling out all the stops, bringing out the big guns!

As for whatplanetradio.com, twitter.com/whatplanetradio, and facebook.com/whatplanetradio, I’m going to keep blogging about music stuff, so keep coming back for what is sure to be the best thing to happen to music blogging since people discovered they needed no web skills to run a blog.
