LOCKED OUT! [21 Mar 2008|08:28pm]

Well folks, there will be no Coffee and Cartoons tonight, as you've probably figured out by now since the show was supposed to air about 1/2 hour ago.

Turns out the key to the station no longer works, and now I need an access card to get in.  Obtaining one will be a bit of a hardship, since I work over an hour away from the university during the school week, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!

As for this week, my apologies... it's just as well, considering that I'm sick and all.  Catch you next week!

Concert Report! March 22nd - March 29th [21 Mar 2008|03:13pm]
[ mood | sick ]

So the good news is that I'm going back on the air tonight, and that the concert report is already available (see below):

The bad news is, I'm just starting to get over the flu.  It started to let up today.  I have to go super-easy on myself so I don't get worse.  With that in mind, I'm probably going to hold off on airing any interviews until next week (since I couldn't promote them properly beforehand, having been sick), AND the birthday show will be next week too!

Check out the concert report!

Great Googlie Mooglies!! Back on the air, 3-21 [14 Mar 2008|08:30am]
[ mood | happy ]

Greetings folks and folkies!

It's almost spring, so it's nearly time for Coffee and Cartoons to come out of hibernation.  Truth be told, it's actually College Hockey Season that we've been waiting out, not Winter. =)  Either way, Coffee and Cartoons returns to the airwaves, hopefully unfettered, on March 21st.  Set your calendars, and mark your watches!  Or something like that.

Just in case you're curious, it's been a great little vaca for me.  I've missed being on the air, but having Friday nights free gave me the opportunity to do a few neat things:
1. Check out some fantastic live music.
2. Work late to get promoted (hopefully) at my current job.
3. Sleep.
4. Date (yes, really!)
5. Go to MarsCon...

... yeah, I went there!  I got chased by a Dalek, and did not get ex-ter-min-ate-d.  I jammed on a darbuka with a strap made of huge paperclips.  I played with a ball of Pooh in the pool with the Great Luke Ski.  And best of all, I saw comedy music acts that were so funny that I fell of my chair at the Main Stage From laughing so hard.  I should post some pictures or something!

 And not only were many of the musicians super generous about sending music back for me to check into the studio, many of them made time for interviews!  I plan to kick off Coffee and Cartoons return with my interview with Chris Mezzolesta from Power Salad, and then there will be interviews in the weeks to follow with acts such as DJ Particle, Hot Waffles, and Luke Ski.  Yippie!  (What, did you expect me to go to MarsCon and just hang out? =P )

Anyway, I owe a few of you some emails, but I just wanted to say a quick hello to let you know that I've been thinking of you, the Coffee and Cartoons listeners, during my hiatus.  =)  Catch you soon!

By the way, I've made a few executive decisions:
1. I'm going to ax the weekly love song feature, unless I'm faced with strong objection.  I just don't feel like it's fitting in with the rest of the programming.  But if you still need a little love with no strings attached, I'll change my mind.

2. I'm going more in the comedy direction with my programming.  There's lots of local folk programming in Eastern Massachusetts and on the web... there are several folk shows on WUML alone.  There's little to no comedy programming, however, especially since Dr. Demento isn't heard locally anymore.  So as much as I love folk, I'm going to focus on the comedy stuff going forward.  There will always be room for my folkies though, especially for live stuff.  I don't want Coffee and Cartoons to lose the coffee house feel

3. I'm releasing an album before I turn 30.  This means I probably won't have much time to make a website for Coffee and Cartoons, or to do a podcast independent of WUML's Coffee and Cartoons.

So, what have all of you been upto?  Feel free to drop a line as always!

Not Quite Coffee and Cartoons, but... [08 Dec 2007|11:04am]

Greetings all,

'Tis the season... the HOCKEY season, that is.  Go Riverhawks!

But there isn't a whole lot of airtime for Coffee and Cartoons around this time of year.  So 'toon in today for Almost Acoustic!!!

Today I will be a fill-in host for a program on WUML (where I host Coffee and Cartoons) from 12pm to 3pm Eastern. It's a bluegrass and folk show called Almost Acoustic, and it's on 91.5FM WUML for those of you who reside in or near the Merrimack Valley in New England.

For those beyond, it's online:



Oh, and as a special advanced heads-up for all of you, there will be Coffee and Cartoons for your Christmas Eve enjoyment from 6pm to 8pm on December 24th.  Get your holiday requests in early, it's gonna be crazy go nuts!

I've forgotten to post here!!! [01 Nov 2007|11:26pm]
Hi all,

I apologize I haven't updated this page in quite some time.  Coffee and Cartoons is indeed very much alive, even with hockey season in full swing.  It happens that tomorrow night there is no hockey game scheduled.  YAY!!!  I've been planning a couple of hours of entertainment for your Friday night that will hopefully make up at least a little bit for my neglect since my summer hiatus.

Truth be told, I should just give Hodgeheg the password to this page, because he updates here more often than I do!  ; )  

He gets heaps of thanks, goatloads of gratitude, and thensome, for making PODCASTS OF THE SHOW!!!  Yay!

Here is the podcast of the September 21st show:  http://communications.uml.edu/connections/?p=570
Here is the podcast of the October 12th show: (http://communications.uml.edu/connections/?p=593). 
Here is me getting ready for bed, hoping you'll tune in to the show tomorrow night to hear all kinds of tunes -- tricks and treats alike!  Catch you tomorrow night!

Oh, and I've already lined up and road-tested the perfect bad joke for the program. =)

a special guest! [04 May 2007|06:43am]
Tonight, on the Coffee and Cartoons show, our special guest will be none other than the Sunshine herself!

Sure, the show is on at night.  But this is underground radio!  If we want the Sunshine on the show on a Friday night, trust me, we can make it happen.

Don't miss it, and don't be missed! =)

I apologize for the sparse updates these days.

Just a quick note... Coffee and Cartoons will not air as scheduled tonight. The roads are bad, and my best friend needs help packing a moving truck. =/

Next week, be ready!
