Themeless

(aired 6/24/11)

bizness

Today has an unusual theme: none. One of the most delightful aspects of this radio show for me is building shows around a particular topic/word — and getting relevant song suggestions from you listeners. Yet to tell you the truth, that journey of construction also takes a lot of time and energy from start to finish for each show.

I’ve now realized that it’s worth it for me to change my pace for this summer and have more themeless shows. Just awesome music! It still gives me a valuable opportunity to continue to spend time with you on the air every week and simply share artists and songs I like. It will most likely be a temporary break before I move back into full themes later.

In the meantime, please stay connected and share your song requests, your theme ideas for later, artists you like, or feedback. Email me at maya@kskq.org, join the Maya’s Mix Facebook group, or leave a comment here on this blog. Thanks for listening!

    GOOD MUSIC, ABSENCE OF A THEME NOTWITHSTANDING.
    LOVE THE FACT THAT WE CAN LISTEN, AFTER THE BROADCAST, ON THE COMPUTER, SIMULTANEOUSLY WORKING ON THE COMPUTER.
