Tuesday was our final radio show of the Fall 2013 season. It was also our 50th live band on the show, so like most special occasions and anniversaries, everything went wrong.
One of our sound techs didn't show up. The broadcast cut out completely for the band's first song. There were roaches scurrying around. Some student wandered in and tried to put up anti-fracking posters while the band was playing. The broadcast cut out again during the first half of the interview. The cake wasn't tasty. The cat bit the drummer.
Really, all we needed for the evening to be complete was for the slow cooker to break and leave us with no chili.
But you know what? The band was great. I guess that's showbiz, kid!
Here's to 50 great bands on the Rodent Hour, and to another 50 more.
