[IMG: Finger On The Pulse] I occasionally have the pleasure of being a guest DJ on a radio show or helping a DJ friend pick songs. I love doing it because I get to share the music I love with whomever happens to be listening. Here are some of the things I've played.

May 23, 2005, 2-4pm For two hours, I was driving the decks at Pirate Cat Radio. For this set, I tried to play a lot of artists who are playing at the Mission Creek Music Festival, as well as other miscellaneous upcoming gigs (like the excellent upcoming City Sessions show and the Nick Drake Tribute show at the Cafe Du Nord.) Most of the artists I played are local, with some exceptions.

May 8, 2005, 6:30-9pm I tricked the Boy Wonder into playing some of the tunes I had brought with me during his set on KALX. Only the stuff I chose is below. It is taken out of context because I don't have the full set list for the evening (nor the ordering of the stuff I played). I might also be forgeting something because I only wrote stuff down after the fact.
