Well, I had a playlist all planned out on my iPod and wouldn't you know it, I couldn't get the line-in working on the desk. No idea what happened but I had to scramble and pull random CDs from the stacks - I won't make that mistake again! I own lots of the stuff I played but I also pulled out plenty of good-but-not-great new indie bands just to mix them in.
It was good practice, though, and by the end I was getting the hang of it, setting the right levels and feeling more comfortable in front of the mike. Next week will be my proper debut!
Oh, and I'm followed by another local resident whose show is called "Home Cooking Jazz with Judith".
