Who doesn't love a good starburst? Click to make it Texas-sized...

I’ve been doing a couple of show fills here and there over the last few months, so I thought I’d share them here as well.

First up, the Road Pops. I could never match the banter that Kevin and Grant are known and loved for, so I just dropped some tunes.

DJ Cosm runs a tight ship on Mental Illness and he’s way more up and current hip hop than I am, so I played soem funk and then dropped into some nice late summer jams.

Ian Chiclo hosted the Friday morning slot for years and years, but recently decided to move onto other things. I know many, including myself, will miss his presence on the airwaves. I’ve had the pleasure of filling for him on the House Blend and its previous incarnation the 2 1/2 Hour Coffee Break, a few times over the years, but this was unfortunately the last.

If you don’t know the Musiquarium, well… Let’s just say I’d be surprised if you listened to my show and didn’t know about the lead show of CJSW’s Friday Night Lineup. Here I am doing my best impression of a nice and friendly Sideshow Sid, which is to say, someone not like Sid at all…
