What’s This Called? DJ Throwdown

Three... Two...

The Judges

What’s This Called? DJ Throwdown, w/ Austin Rich! (Judged by Jonathon Boober & Miss Rikki!)
(A No-format-barred battle to out-experimental each other, between Ricardo Wang & Austin Rich!)

Last week Ricardo Wang called me and put me up to the challenge: a good old fashioned weird-off, on his show.  It seemed like the perfect way to start the year, and so I stepped up, piling my bag full of vinyl and .mp3s of my favorite musical oddities.  Miss Rikki and Jonathon Boober were elected as judges, to insure that everyone played fair.  The results were one of the most fun two hours I’ve had on radio in a while.  Ladies and gentleman, our DJ Throwndown, performed with the impending threat of a snowpacalyse, live on the radio.

There’s not much else I can say about this one, as the show speaks for itself.  I was happy to play some of my favorite oddities from my collection, and I had almost as much fun throwing together a hodge-podge of music to answer anything Ricardo Wang was willing to throw down.  I don’t want to spoil the ending, but suffice it to say that he has now sparked a virus among our DJs, and you won’t have to wait long to hear the next one.

Then, of course, there’s the 2 PM hour…

See you in 120.
