All it took for me to have input on the programming was that it had to be my last show. Oh my God, Wednesday was MY LAST SHOW!!
Ok, so my mix was a bit random. I was like a kid in a candy store, I wanted to have one of everything. In the set, I made sure to sprinkle some Canadian goodness (most of it old school and none of it Drake), I tossed in some R & B, mixed in some hip hop and doused it ever-so-slightly with a bit of ratchet. I got a lot of love on the SMS line – I was surprised and it made me feel good, then sad, because I’m leaving.
It sounds like such a cliché that I’m shit at goodbyes. I’ve had such a blast over the last 2+ years on Stolen Records. I’ve learned a shit-ton of radio stuff, perfected my off-mic Janini Panini diva tantrum and got to hang out with the two coolest guys on radio. And not to be forgotten, I got to interact with you, our listeners through social media and at times in person.
So thank you Sydney and people who live in Sydney – for being such a great city housing great people doing great things. But let’s not get awkward about this. I’ve moving overseas not underground and where there’s Internet there’s me. See you in cyberspace.
