Howdy folks in Internet-Land!
(I’m terribly sorry, that was way too chipper for my usual greeting. But it’s 12:12 AM right now, and I’m punchy.)
You may have noticed, with sadness and longing, that I am no longer on the radio in Richmond. I know, I miss it, too. In the intervening three months, I have relocated myself to Ithaca, New York, for grad school at Cornell. Since I have never been a graduate student before, I have no idea as to what sort of workload I have ahead of me–classes start in a little over a week and a half, so I am in the process of trying to figure out what it is I have to do, and whether or not a radio broadcast will be part of the imminent future. So hang tight–I’m just as bewildered and scared as you are.
So, dramatic prairie dogs aside, I will keep you posted about future happenings. Among other things, I need to make a demo-reel for any radio station that might take me. Luckily, Ithaca has a good folk scene (it’s where my hero, Bruce Molsky, got his start–he was at Cornell doing a degree in engineering and learned from the great Walt Koken), so we’ll see if I can’t get something figured out here soon.
Meanwhile, enjoy this beautiful picture of Ithaca Falls (new name fodder?)
