Last night, I filled in for Martin Phillips on “Thursday Night Jazz” on 88.1 FM WCWP.

Here is the aircheck of the show.

And here are pictures of me that I took with the 10-second self-timer on my camera:

This Thursday, October 29, on 88.1 FM WCWP, I’ll be filling in for Martin Phillips on “Thursday Night Jazz.”  The show airs live from 10PM to 1AM ET.  I worked on my playlist last night and made a few edits to it today.  It should be a fun show with songs spanning 50 years; from 1959 to 2009.

See you Thursday.

11/1 UPDATE: You can hear the show’s aircheck in this post.

I arrived on campus for this year’s Homecoming shortly after 2:30.  Unlike last year, the weather was cloudy (at least when I arrived), warm, and humid.

After putting all my equipment (and two bottles of soda) down at WCWP, I walked to Hickox Field to soak in the Homecoming atmosphere.

The WCWP play-by-play announcers were in the lower right corner.

Here’s a closer look:

The Pioneers won 40-24.

After I got back to WCWP, the rains came, and they were heavy.

There were even a few rumbles of thunder, including a loud crash.

Across from Studio 1, I noticed the print version of Jim Merritt’s Newsday recap of this year’s Long Island Radio & TV Day.

Bernie was the board operator during Steve and Birdy’s radio show, which led in to mine.

At 6:30, I headed to the Pioneer Room in Hillwood Commons to set up for my show from the WCWP Homecoming Dinner.
