First Shift of The Summer

I’m enjoying the first week in which I have no school related activities in which to participate. This is a good time of year, classes are done, exams are done, projects have been turned in, and if wasn’t for the new puppy I adopted, I would be sleeping a lot. The change of seasons is an exciting time. It’s recently been getting hot here in Texas, and while I don’t necessarily enjoy the scorching heat that we have during August, at the beginning it’s not so bad. New plants grow, animals come out of hibernation, I’m at much less risk of Vampire attack thanks to the abundance of sunshine and longer days. I feel like I probably won’t change anything with The Cassette Deck. I like it just the way it is. I was thinking about revamping the format and changing it to something different. I realized that I have a duty to provide the best in new and unheardof indie music to the FM dial listeners and no one was going to do that but me.
I hope you all enjoy the show as much as I enjoy doing it.
