A hearty welcome to all; also, introduce yourself!greenspun.com : LUSENET : 770 Radio K: A Klatsch : One Thread
If you're reading this, I have informed you of the new web-based forum about all things Radio K related: "770 Radio K: A Klatsch." Welcome to this venture!
I am Brian Roberts. Some of you may know me, but for those of you who don't, I was a volunteer at and employee of the station for several years, and am currently DJing on Monday nights. And now I'm the admin of this discussion group. Feel free to talk about whatever you want here, within the bounds of respect and good taste. This forum is for all people who are a part of Radio K, or once were, or just carry a deep and abiding love for all things related to the station. All are welcome; none who care will be turned away.
That being said, let's kick all this off by introducing ourselves to each other. Sometimes it's hard to get to know everyone at Radio K; take this opportunity to let everone else know who you are, or at least who you think you are.

I'm Oren I started at Radio K last fall, I just wanted to say this: Thank God someone finally took the initiative to do something about the unending listserv bombardment! Thank you so much. I just hope it catches on. Happy Birthday Brian!

This is Angie. What's a klatsch? I have nothing interesting to say right now.
-- Angie (email@example.com), July 03, 2001.
klatch or klatsch (klch, kläch)
A casual social gathering, usually for conversation.
Thanks for the birthday wishes, you two!

Hi, my name is Karla. I host Off the Record on Radio K. It's a lot of fun. I've been doing it for almost a whole year now. Anyway, happy belated birthday Brian!

Wow, Radio K hosting a LUSENET forum! Welcome. You guys are the best Rstation in the midwest, and especially in Mpls/St. Paul, where it is a desolate wasteland.

Hi. Paul Harding here. I host Radio K International, Sunday mornings.
-- Paul Harding (email@example.com), July 05, 2001.
Nifty thing you've started, Brian.
I co-host "Cosmic Slop" on Sunday afternoon with Joel Stitzel. I've been around Radio K since 1993.
And I dawdle on bulletin boards like this entirely too much.

And in looking at my last posting, I apparently can't spell my own last name properly...

Even the typo-prone are welcome here, Chuck.

Chuck, to what do you and Joel attribute your encyclopedic knowledge of 70's trivia? Older siblings? Aromatherapy? (I hear it brings back memories like an acid flashback.) Acid flashbacks? Continuing research? What's the secret?
Sunday afternoons in the car, driving home, once we get just south of Hinckley - Cosmic Slop time.
-- Bemused (email@example.com), July 06, 2001.
Bemused...I'll start a new discussion to answer your question.

Hi! I'm Joel Stitzel, co-host of "Cosmic Slop".
I've been with Radio K since its inception--_before_ its inception, in fact, because I was the station's first music director. Organized the music library, chose the initial rotation and (770!) library songs, designed the data sheets that go into the CDs, developed the systems that generate the playlists...fun stuff like that.
And I stuck the first sticker on the now sticker-filled door of the station's Music Office--promoting Color Me Badd's second album (it's since been torn down by young upstarts with no sense of history). Fond greetings to everybody!
