Oh, KISD FM, I just want to thank you for giving me some street cred. Well, I don’t know if you gave me street cred. Actually, I don’t think I have ANY street cred. As a matter of fact, I’m pretty sure I don’t actually know what street cred is. I certainly didn’t back in the day, since I didn’t even live on a street. I lived next to a gravel road. The closest paved road was about a mile away and the closest actual street was about seven miles further. But what I mean to say, KISD FM, is that thanks to the Now and Then Weekend, not only were you supplying me with a healthy dose of the day’s current hits of all different kinds, you were also giving me a history lesson twice an hour by playing, as you so eloquently put it, the choicest and rarest cuts in the world by today’s hottest artists. I may not have had a good haircut or good glasses or let’s face it, good hygiene, but I knew my music.
I was pretty excited to see who you guys were going to spotlight, and even more excited to hear what my beloved radio stars sounded like back in the day. It was the only history class I’ve ever not fallen asleep in (and this is coming from a guy who fell asleep during a “History of Rock and Roll” class in college, so I know of what I speak). Thanks for trying so hard to try to make me cool, KISD FM.
