what/when is your show?
My show airs on Sunday mornings from 6 to 7. Listeners who don’t want to wake up at 6 can listen to my broadcast on my Facebook page or on my Grooveshark playlist.
sample playlist?
Any sample playlist may include Earth, Wind & Fire, ABBA, and Wings—pretty much groups that I grew up with.

best vinyl you found in the vaults?
I love finding new vinyl in the vaults. I think the coolest for me to find was James Taylor’s totally wonky and overproduced solo album released on Apple Records, James Taylor. Paul McCartney and George Harrison perform vocals and bass on that recording of “Carolina in My Mind”.

why is vinyl superior to mp3?
As an audiophile, there’s no comparison for me between vinyl and MP3. I approve of lossless digital media because there’s a broader dynamic range. Vinyl pressings from before the digital age are beautiful to listen to because of the wide dynamic range and less peak limiting. This to me means richer, more colorful music. In my opinion, the pops and cracks give it personality.

ideal setting to listen to your show?
I’d recommend listening to my radio show through headphones, for sure. I’ve often envisioned folks driving to work or school in the early morning like I did as a child, but soon came to the realization that very few people have work or school on Sunday morning.
if your show was a perfume/cologne, what would it smell like?
If my show were a perfume or cologne, it would smell like synesthesia.

favorite show on wobc?
My favorite show on WOBC has got to be “young, gifted & black” hosted by Caitlin O’Neill last year. My favorite memory of that show was when she took my request and ended one of her shows with “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire.

best wobc memory?
My best memory of WOBC is visiting as a first year and seeing the huge vinyl vault. I knew then… I needed to be a DJ one of these semesters. And here I am! Good to be part of the WOBC family. :)
WE LOVE YOU TOO CUYLER!!
