Playlist subbing for Modern Kicks on KFAI 1/8/14

Here's Joyce and my 2nd appearance as subs for the Modern Kicks show on KFAI. Joyce went 1st, so the 1st hour is all her playlist. Overall, a better show than the last sound-wise/transition-wise, etc. I still didn't get my background music perfect, as especially the last segment with the Debashish, I was speaking over it, but from what I can hear, not well enough in general. But, another note to improve on.

Thanks to Sean from Modern Kicks again. I'm not sure how often these sub spots may come up this year, and especially if I and more likely Joyce, will be able to do it. But every once in awhile isn't so difficult to pull off the 2-4 hour nap from within the 5-10PM hours and then catch another fragment of sleep from 3-5:30 somehow.

Or, getting to sub on an evening where I have the next work day off as I did today for another reason (an appointment in a relatively nearby place in Wisconsin), so the timing was better than a typical week.

And 1 other thing I think may be a plan for next time, to just simplify the playlist a bit by playing only 3-5 epic tracks. The focus on cramming as many songs in may not exist then.
