Pardon, But What New Radio Show?

Probably should have mentioned this, like, oh, I dunno, Friday maybe? But, yes, I did host a late-night music show on KTCK-AM (1310, The Ticket) on Saturday night that lasted till the wee small hours of Sunday morning. It's called Till 2, as in: Nothing good ever happens after 2 in the morning, but anything goes till 2, get it? I know, right? Brilliant. Anyway, yes, we'll return at 11 p.m. for another show this Saturday; the following Saturday too, till we take a week or two off before returning in early October, just maybe. (At the moment, we'll come on at 11 p.m. following SMU football games, because we have so much in common -- long losing streaks, I think is what Jeff Catlin's getting at.)

For those who did listen to the hodgepodge of the familiar and slightly less so and phoned in with your kind words and requests, much thanks, of course -- though best of all was the one caller who wondered, in a rather sweaty state of panic, whether The Ticket had changed formats. Seemed a little confused, by which I mean very, very, very, very drunk; really should have put him on the air. As several of you have requested a playlist, which I promised I'd post on Unfair Park anyway, it follows after the jump. So, then, till Saturday night. And, yup, request lines are open in the comments. And, sure, I've got some Motörhead, all right. --Robert Wilonsky
