TVD On The Radio

One thing lost with TVD blog radio is the classic DJ “talk up.”

You’ve all heard it a million times...the tune’s percolating in the background and over the top the DJ’s saying, “It’s a sunny and WARM Friday morning Washington, going up to a high of 66 in the city. Ditch those coats, and ladies—wear something skimpy—har”!

Then boom—the vocals of the track kick in at the ‘y’ in skimpy. Seamless and sinuous.

Then there’s the smoooth transition from track to track. Not in the club DJ sense where you’re counting BPM’s—unless it’s an urban contemporary format—but more in the segue from track to track given tone and tempo.

You can’t hear that on the blog. But I can.

Quite the slice of Power Pop this day...

And as Rex the Singing Weatherman used to say, "It's sunny and 72 in Wyandotte!"
