A resurrection seemed like a fitting theme to start out this, my very first show on the airwaves of Kootenay Coop Radio, CJLY 93.5 in beautiful Nelson, BC. I actually wanted to try and fit in Back From the Dead from People Under The Stairs, but just couldn’t work it in.

I’d been working on getting a show going in Nelson even before my last one had aired in Calgary but wasn’t sure if it would all come together which is one of the reasons I didn’t drop any hints of it as I was leaving CJSW. And though it seems like I’m just sliding from one to the other, emotionally and personally, it’s definitely the end of one thing and the start of something new. KCR shares some similarities to CJSW since they’re both community radio station, but in many ways they’re worlds apart. The show now airs midday, mid-week (Thursdays at 3pm), and this slot (or any slot at KCR, really) definitely doesn’t have the cachet nor the history that my Friday night one did. No amazing lead-in or follow up. I’m still trying to figure out what the audience is, and what works best for this slot. It’s similar to what it was, but subtly different, and I’ll be tweaking things as I go and get comfortable.

So, new show, new(ish) name. I’ve trimmed the fat, it’ll just be the Beat Diet for now. Hope you like it.

Note: this one’s from the logger, so low bitrate and mono sound. Perfect for crappy earbuds, ha!
