The main feature of the show this week was that I had a co-host of sorts for part of the program, Mark. Mark is a new programmer at CJSW and I've been helping out with his training for the past three weeks (not that he really needed training; in the past, he was on-air at the Memorial University station and in Exeter, England). While he did some on-air talk last week, this was his first lengthy time behind the boards, about 45 or so minutes; looking at the list above, he played everything from Alien Sex Fiend through The Rabid Whole. Mark did a great job and I'm sure we'll hear him on air again at CJSW fairly soon.

Muscially, there was a strong jazz presence today. Not really planned but a number of new jazz CDs, mostly Canadian, came my way over the past week so might as well play them. I suspect next week's show will be less jazzy but I won't really know until it happens :-)
