It's winter.... well not really. Technically the calendar says winter, but for the past few months there has been no sign of it. Except for today. Yes, today when Fujiya & Miyagi are scheduled to show up to do their session with me. It decides to snow and enough to make the band's drive from their show in Philly the night before not a wonderful one. So I prepare the coffee, buy the bagels, fruit and juice while I await their arrival.
It's so refreshing when the band you have come in is actually a fan of the station. They become in awe of you and your place while you are in awe back at them for actually wanting to do a set for your show! They all pile in and are as nice as can be. As the band sets up, I chatted with David, the guitarist and singer, about the station and promised them a tour afterwards. It was such a relaxed vibe they gave off that it made everything run so smooth and comfortable. They get in to play and are pure professionals. It's my own private show, just for myself, though they can't hear me cheering behind the double plated glass. The entire time I can't stop moving. The music takes over and your are in their control, which isn't a bad thing.
Afterwards, the promised tour makes them giddy and the record library is a world of wonder. One of them even pulled out an album of his from a previous band. Ahhh, yes, the wonders of the record library....
Hopefully the next time they come around, the sun will be shining, the weather a little warmer and the stay a little longer. I could have listened to them all day and night.
