Oh my goodness. I thought I had lost this 12-inch single when I quit spinning at the local bar a couple of years ago. It’s my limited edition copy of Reba McEntire’s “You Keep Me Hanging On”, on pink vinyl! It has a “limited edition” serial number and everything.

I remember purchasing this single when Earl and I were first together. Earl and I were in Boston buying music and were looking for the cover of this song we had heard at Hillside Campground the week before. Being the cocky DJ that I was, I couldn’t lower myself to ask “DJ Mediocrity” (that how I referred to him) who the artist of that track was, so we looked around the bins at Tower Records and figured out who it was.

I love this record! I’m going to record it into my iTunes collection.

No gig this week, but here’s the top of my iPod selections this week:

  1. “Pure Imagination (Wonka Trance Edit)”, Ford.
  2. “Proud”, Heather Small. (formerly of M-People)
  3. “Love On My Mind”, Freemasons.
  4. “Listen To Your Heart”, B.H.T.
  5. “Come Rain, Come Shine”, Jenn Cuneta.
  • Honorable Mention: “Be My World”, Milky.

It’s A Groove.

Well I’m recovering from a night of spinning in a Buffalo bar last night. It was the Buffalo Bears night “on the road” as their normal bar is in the process of moving to a new location. So the Bears invaded the Century Grill and held their “Rodeo Night” there.

If you’re in Buffalo and looking for a good place to eat, check out the Century Grill, 320 Pearl St., across from the Hyatt downtown.

Since it was “Rodeo Night”, I played quite a selection of country music spiced in with my usual DJ fare, some 70s, a lot of 80s and early 90s and some current music. It’s a good thing I worked at a country radio station for a while there towards the end of my radio career, it made selecting appropriate line dancing music that much easier!

I was able to be “geek proud” last night as I played a lot of my music off my PowerBook using a program called Megaseg. The logo on my PowerBook shined beautifully in the darkened DJ booth, quite a few people complimented me on being a Maccie. A bunch of people came up and told me how much they were enjoying the music. It’s a nice pat on the back to hear that sort of thing and it just solidifies how much I really enjoy getting a crowd going with club music.

I’ve adopted a new club DJ name. I’m now known as “DJ PiperCub”. There’s a bunch of reasons for this… I love the look of the PiperCub logo, in fact I have it on a t-shirt. (The teddy bear looks so cuddly and happy). In the gay bear vocabulary, I’m more cub than bear (if I keep eating like I have been though, I’ll out grow that status!) Plus, I’m going to be a private pilot some day and I’d love to fly a Piper J-3 Cub. My father had a Piper J-5 Cub Cruiser that we used to fly around in. And if that’s not enough, my favorite witch on Charmed is Piper.
