Soooooooooooooooo Friday was the second to last Kitchen before the show slips into the unknown... Wild stuff. As the penultimate broadcast, I wanted to give it a bit of a theme. I settled on doing one particular year. I thought about it for a good seven or eight seconds before it hit me: 1983. The best year in music ever. So, I got to thinking, and I got to Wikipedia-ing, and before I knew it I had an awesome playlist which I shared with the world on April 24, 2009. Word. Also of complete note: Physical comic Patrick Ferri, my extremely funny cousin, came in with his girlfriend Lorie to co-host and brought a few most excellent vinyl cuts and stories from '83 (since I wasn't alive at the time) to add to the show. Rounding the program out was an ultra rare 7" Patrick brought in from an Albany band called The Stomplistics. On the back of the 45 sleeve was even a "Thank-you" column mentioning WCDB!!! Isn't that something?
BUT enough of me babbling, to the photos!
All photos by HELLO BUNNI, thanks Bunni!!!

PS - Check out the super awesome cart that I'm grossly misusing my power as my last week as PD and forcing all freshman DJs to play four times an hour:
(Just kidding, it's only three) Thanks Joe!
Wow, I'm going to miss this.
