Guest DJ Show : Doing Radio Right

It's great when the public airwaves actually serve a public purpose. Every one of us has an interesting life story to share -- and here, with a soundtrack!

Eh

I think it really depends on the guests. Like I loved Justin Theroux’s list, but Elon Musk’s made me feel really embarrassed for him. Sometimes I want the full song and longer explanations, but sometimes I want it to be over. I don’t like that the interviewer constantly tells you who the person is. I feel like that takes up 1/4 of the whole episode. I clicked on it. I know who it is.

It helps me understand the guests

Whenever you're invitted to hear what turns people on musically, it gives you entree into a better understanding of that person. Sure, longer song snippets would be welcome, but I'd also like to have the guests more prepared to explain what these songs mean to them. Some guests are preparted and go deep, but others just seem to rattle off a quick list of five from the past 2-3 years, or a list of standards that don't give the audience any real understanding of their feelings for the song.
