Radio Days

Twenty years ago, on a Saturday morning of January 14th 2001, I walked into KLSU studio and broadcasted the very first Little Lighthouse over the radio. Soon after that, I had an idea to put mp3 recordings of the show on my website and basically created the first podcast in the world (maybe?!). Twenty years later, I still do this weekly, delighting a negligible amount of listeners. And so we go into the 21st year with some new music from Kelley Stoltz, Radio Days, Mark Crozer, Andy Bopp, Guided By Voices, Pushups. But we start with good old Dukes of Stratosphear that inspired all this that I do and we end with a bouquet of Bob Dylan tunes.
