I know it can be tough to find the perfect DJ name. Many of the best names are already taken, and so many good name sources have been tapped out for years. Although I am not myself a DJ, still I thought I might contribute in some small way to alleviating this problem by suggesting a new source for excellent DJ names: the alphabetical range cards on the ends of the aisles in your local library.

I'm a yodeling concertina player in Seattle, Washington. (I wonder if I could say, "I am the world's only yodeling concertina player"?) I've released a couple of efforts here on the FMA, and am placing two tracks from my newest here under a CC Attribution license.
The album, titled Bildungsroman, consists of some heartfelt yodels interspersed with solo concertina instrumentals influenced by Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee." The tracks were recorded in a two-mile-long abandoned train tunnel hidden off a mountain pass here in Washington State.
I'm releasing one yodel and one instrumental on the FMA, and I hope people will trade and sample them. I think they have potential! I also hope you'll buy the whole album if it seems worthwhile. I'm selling it at Bandcamp through my website, stevenarntson.info. Click the music link and you'll go straight there. This is somewhat of an experiment for me--I've never tried to sell my music online before, but I thought I'd give it a whirl. Viva the hybrid economy!
