While doing some fact-checking w/r/t DJ Shadow's gig next week at Park West (14 years to the day Endtroducing.... dropped*), I discovered 1) he has a Soundcloud-based online mix "show" called Shadow Radio**, and 2) its most recent episode was contributed by local treasure Bob Abrahamian of WHPK "Sitting In the Park" fame.
* Other things I learned fact-checking: Endtroducing..... officially has five ellipsis marks.
** "Oh, one last note: I detest irony in music, and as such, none of my selections are 'ironic.' You can be sure that if it appears on Shadow Radio, it is a full-fledged endorsement of the artist’s vision, even if selected in jest, or in a context probably not originally intended. Without the occasional chuckle, music would be dull indeed…and as such, I feel that even unintentional humor is cause for celebration, and is a worthy component of our shared musical experiences." As a mission statement that's kind of awesome.
