The Reverend Rocks

i radio heaven

i get mixed signals
i move the antenna
i switch the channels
i lie in this bed
my satellite dish
is there room in the universe
for one last wish
(i say)

do you read me
over
you wanna come
over

("I Radio Heaven," Over the Rhine)

My radio debut, "The Reverend Rocks," airs live tonight at 7pm Central Time, streaming at wltl.net. I'm equal parts nervous and excited. The whole concept of speaking into a microphone that takes the sound elsewhere, out into the universe, where I can't see who or how many are listening, is terrifying. But the opportunity to craft that perfect playlist is absolutely exhilarating. I've written a few music reviews through the years, and I used to write that blog series called Music Mondays. But really, when it comes down to it, what I want to do even more than write about the music I love is get people to listen to the music I love. And that's what I get to do, for an entire hour. Tune in, won't you?
