In the cracks, with the Voice of Doom, on KZSU

This is the playlist for an intersession pick up radio show (on Sunday June 24th, 2000, noon-3pm), once again at play on the airwaves between the cracks in the sheduling process at KZSU (that's the Stanford radio station, 90.1 FM in the Bay area). I signed up for this during what turned out to be a fairly insane week for me. My solution: mix it up. When you've got 4 or 5 things playing at once, it's unlikey that all of them are going to suddenly end when you're not looking.

Theme: Zoviet France, _Shouting at the Ground_, all 4 sides (sometimes two at once). Some DJs have a theme that they play at the beginning of their show. Me, I play my theme "song" constantly, at every moment throughout the show. And this is it, an old double LP vinyl release from Zoviet France.

KZSU's A-file

What's the A-file? It's a pile of recently released music that we've decided is good stuff that it deserves a push. DJ's are technically required to play something like ten tracks per show out of the A-file, though most play more than that. How does something get into the A-file? Well, hopeful labels & bands send us stuff, DJs volunteer to review it and paste short write-ups on the front, then it gets passed to the music directors, who look at the reviews, maybe give it another listen or two, and decide if it's "A-file" worthy (or if it merely gets sent to our main library... unlike some college radio stations, KZSU tries not to throw stuff away). There's a few other checks and balances in the system, but that's about it.

If you'd like to see what's currently in the a-file, you can view it on line: The Current A-File . If you're curious about something in the A-file, you can always try phoning in a request: (415) 723-9010. If it's half-way appropriate for the current show, maybe they'll get it on the air (it might help if you can give them the A-file number with your request).
