Podcast #2 and Setlist from DJ'ing with Greg Cartwright...

Ben 102 by cassdetroit

Notes on the Podcast:
This was actually recorded about three years ago and was intended to be part of Ko's podcast series, hence her cackling all over the thing. The idea was to be an "introduction" to me and all the different things I've done musically. So if you can get past the grating of Ko's voice, here's some notes/corrections to go with it:

At 6:02 I say the Starlite Desperation moved to Detroit in August of 1998. It was actually August of 1999.

At 7:32 I say Belle Isle is roughly 980 acres. It is actually 982 acres. New York's Central Park is 843 acres.

At 17:59 I can't remember if PBS radio is in Melbourne or Sydney. It is in the Collingwood neighborhood of Melbourne.

At 43:46 I say the Lost Kids recording is from 1998. It is actually from 2000.

Also, last night I had the extreme pleasure to DJ with the one and only Greg Cartwright at the Foo Bar in East Nashville. Rather than do a whole new post dedicated to it, I've tacked on my playlist here, all played from original issue 7" singles. Dig.
