Just in case none of you bother reading all that stuff on the left I’ve been doing DJ shifts under the Cuppa Joe moniker on KALX in Berkeley for a bunch of years now. Sadly my current shift (9:30 to midnight every Thursday) will expire in a couple of weeks but I’m hoping to get another spot soon. It’s part of the station’s mission to have Cal students on the air most of the time and while that makes it hard on us “community members” who love spinning records and running our mouths I have to applaud the policy.
While typing up the previous blurb about Vampire Weekend’s limited edition 7″ it occurred to me that posting this set from my show on March 13 would be a nice way to celebrate a timelsot I’ll sorely miss (seeing as how it contains the song from the VW video and all).
The Dodos – “Fools” (from Visiter on French Kiss)
DJ Paul V – “Tequila Lip Gloss (Lil Mama vs. The Champs)” (from the Best Of Bootie 2007 compilation discussed here)
The Coasters – “Charlie Brown” (from the Loud, Fast & Out of Control compilation on Rhino)
Vampire Weekend – “A-Punk” (from their self-titled record on XL)
Binky Griptite & The Mellomatics – “Mellomatic Mood” (from the 7” single on Daptone)
