Taking a Break

Aloha all!

In case you haven’t noticed (and I know some of you did) The So Very Show has been taking a break. I’ve been receiving some emails from some of my subscribers asking for updates and you deserve them. So… here goes.

A couple of things happened over the last couple of weeks/months. These aren’t excuses, but explanations, which I’m offering if you want to hear them.

First of all, Casa ended a little while back due to lack of attendance. Second of all, I had some website problems which I wasn’t able to solve myself, and resulted in delays in posting and lots of banging-my-head-on-the-wall moments. Third, I started working late at my day job (yes, I have one!) due to deadlines and such. And finally, I had a really bummer of a moment a couple of months ago when I got yelled at by a producer for “killing house music”. It’s a long story and I won’t bore you with it, except to say that it really bummed me out. All of these things combined made it very hard for me to keep up the 3-hour-live-show-with-a-live-mix, plus tracklist, plus podcast format that we have been used to for the past 5-6 years.

I’d like to continue the show, and the one and only reason for continuing it would be you guys, my listeners. I’m looking at some much-needed changes including changing the length of the show and format, and improving the website.

I’ve always been rather wary of soliciting feedback from my listeners. It’s nothing personal, I think it goes back to the old days of being the only female dj at 3 in the morning on a college station, resulting in mostly phone calls from stoners and heavy breathers. But I realize that if I’m going to continue to do the show for YOU, I should ask you for some input. So, email me or leave me some comments, please. I’d like to hear what you like about the show (so I don’t get rid of it) and what you’d like to hear, or even a simple “I’m listening!” in the comments would be great. I’ll keep you guys updated via the email list (are you subscribed?) as to when the next show will be.

In the meantime, I’ve selected from our WEALTH of back catalog of shows, an archived show for you to enjoy this week. Here’s an oldie but goodie from the KTUH days. Enjoy!
