The Comfortably Numb Hour

comfortably numb 

College radio is a symbol for subculture, underground music, and ideas outside the mainstream.  Without creative thinkers who have a place to express themselves, life would be boring and tedious.  When I stopped by the KSSU table at orientation last summer, I was surprised to see we had a student run radio station, and that it was free form – which means the DJ’s can create their shows any way they want, as long as basic rules and regulations are followed.  I have fancied myself as someone who embraces most forms of creative expression, so I jotted my contact info down and hoped I would be given the opportunity to at least speak with the director and maybe even – gasp – get my own show.

The interview was a bit nerve wracking because Josue and Sue gave nothing away.  They asked their questions, I answered, and then I was told I would be getting one of two emails in the coming weeks:  either, sorry we only had so many spots or congratulations you are a new DJ.  I was so ecstatic when I received the congrats email, my dog Beauty got excited as well – and it takes a lot to get her excited.

So let me just say that I am thrilled to be sharing music with you that has meant a lot to me.  I will also be interviewing awesome people doing amazing things.  My show is called:  The Comfortably Numb Hour, and I am DJ Mercy.  Here is my commercial:
