I don’t know if this will be picked up by anyone else, but I wanted to try and propose a theme for a day on ds106 radio — it probably hinges on someone pushing for it in the morning. But oh well, you can’t do more than try.
My friend’s brother was a DJ on a station back in the old days, and I remember him talking about CCR’s version of “Heard it on the Grapevine” (which I do like) at 15:45 was the ideal disc to play when he had to take a crap.
My idea is to celebrate the long songs, ones that double the old 3 and a half minute single, that is songs longer than 7 minutes. I am sure someone will reach for the ultra marathoner In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (I won’t).
So my rules are that each person pick 3 long songs, maybe record an intro, and upload a zip (name it with “longsong” in the title of the it all to the station via http://dropitto.me/ds106 (password=wejamecono).
Here’s my intro
My three picks were:
- Low Spark of High Heeled Boys (Traffic, live version, 14:24)
- Take Me to the River (version by Aynsly Lister, 8:50)
- I Just Want to Make Love to You (Foghat, an oldie, at 8:28)
