(And in Marnie's fantasy world, it looks an awful lot like WKRP In Cincinatti.)
Hello my fellow popsters!
I'm back on terrestrial radio and I gotta say, it feels really great to be back spinning records and talking through a fancy microphone! If you're in the Davis/Sacramento area, you can tune your dial to 90.3 fm OR you can stream live from the KDVS website (or through their nifty iPhone/Android app).
I'm on ever Wednesday from 6 am to 8 am, which is really good news if a) you wake up around that time and want a great way to start your day or b) live in Europe and want to listen to some tunes while you have an afternoon tea and Jaffa Cake break or c) are transporting goods across America in your semi-truck and are tired of listening to Convoy all the time. Also there's a secret fourth option known as "D": you don't have to stream or listen live at all. You can listen to the show after the fact by visiting the P&C blog or the KDVS archives. How fun is all that? So fun!
Any suggs, comments, requests can be left in the comments section for each week's entry here on this blog. So sit back, drink your Ovaltine and enjoy the next radiophonical installment of Pop! & Circumstance – the radio show that became a Popcast and then became a radio show again. Hey ho, let's go!
A funny note: so for all the time I've been doing online Popcasts here, I've gone by the moniker, Dr. Marnie. You may or may not know that when P&C was born on the radio back in 2000, my DJ name was Miss Marnie Hotpants (and why? Well, it's a bit of a long story that involves a Reverend Alvin but I'll save that for another time!). Anyways, the name stuck and I went with it for all the years my show was on the air. When I started P&C.com, I wanted a fresh nom de plume to accompany my new virtual digs so I went with Dr. Marnie. But when I went back on the air earlier this month, I wasn't sure which name to use! After consulting with my Swiss team of Alpine Etymologists, I decided to go with MMHP for purely nostalgic reasons. Plus, it's hard to believe but 2000 is now 13 years ago and I'm proud to be the owner of a self-made secrety identity of that vintage. So don't be confused when you see some posts signed "Dr. Marnie" and others "Miss Marnie Hotpants" while you're on this site. One lives in a top secret music laboratory on top of the Matterhorn accesible only by gyrocopter, and the other lives underground in a tiny basement studio that broadcasts at 9200 watts. Believe or not, we're one and the same.
