Chico's back on the air...

So my good friend Chico, formerly of KWCW 90.5 Walla Walla (and a slew of other radio stations from Walla to Mt. Vernon) is back on the air at Super CFL 97.7 FM Seattle and KCFL Fall City. What the heck is this, you ask? It's a low-power FM station playing a weird mix of stuff.

He's on overnight..."Chico on the Overnight" to be precise. That's radio talk for "I stay up all night so you don't have to." Except he doesn't, 'cause the whole thing is automated off a server somewhere in a pasture in Fall City. He records his spots in the evening, loads 'em up, and lets the server do the rest of the work. It's like a podcast that's broadcast.

Give it a listen if you're so inclined (you can stream from the web site). You East Coast types can catch his last few hours from the comfort of your desks, and who knows, you might hear Mr. Chicken as a "guest DJ" or doing sports or some crap. Or perhaps a bootleg Chicken Starship song. Or, more likely, just some songs from the '70s.
