About Me

In my younger days (the mid 80s)I hosted and then programmed a 100,000 watt Public Radio Show called Static-N-Stereo. Blasting new wave, punk, and everything else to the music void that was Mid-America.

I wrote Music reviews for a local alternative newspaper for a while in addition to my real job which is managing a large not-for-profit social services agency. Even today as a 40 something family man I still love to hunt out interesting music.

2012 I got to see the Kills! Very cool.

2011 concert highlights were Arcade Fire and U2. Both great shows. I was especially impressed with Arcade Fire.

I got to see DEVO in 2010. They were great.

Hi Randy, your April mix left Sydney today (April 11th).

David

Interesting range of services in your agencies. I've done a fair amount of work in housing as well. Founded a youth shelter here in Peterborough and ran it for a while. Worked for few different mental health and youth justice programmes as well. Community Outreach, those types of things. Right now I'm managing a 110 unit, low-income housing complex. I was just curious as I don't come across too many people from the same sector on this site (or age range for that matter). Good for you.

Hi Randy, I put your Dec. 'll mix in the mail yesterday (12/31), so it should make its way to you in the next 3-5 days. Sorry for the delay, but I hope you enjoy. Hope your 2012 is off to a great start! --Ashley

Leisa

November mix sent out today :) hope it finds you well!

David

I just noticed from your profile that you manage a non profit. So do I. What type of agency is it?

David

Hey, Hey: Got your August mix today. Great selection and I don't know many of the artists, so thanks for that.

*Martin

no worries randy, take your time man. if you don't have anything in mind yet, I'd be thrilled to receive 'when i go deaf' cheers Martin

Shelly

Thanks for the mix. It rocks! -Shelly

Mandie

Thanks for the mix!

Cat

Just put your Sept mix in the mail today. Sorry for not getting it out sooner. Hopefully the mail will be speedy!

Jessica

Sending your June mix out today and including a bonus mix for good measure. Sorry it's so late!!

Jessica

Your June mix is on its way soon- promise. Sorry it's tardy, I got a little side tracked.

Ross

Thanks for the May mixtape - just back from holiday last night so didn't matter it was a wee bit late. There's some good stuff I know and some stuff I don't so really looking forward to listening to it properly in the next couple of days

Eric

Howdy Randy. Just mailing your December mix today. Sorry so late. I ate some bad holiday fruitcake and have been in a coma for the last 3 weeks. As a result I lost most of my memories and had to relearn music from the start of history. After spending about 10 minutes listening through early scratchy recording from 1912 of Jelly Roll Morton, I decided it was too taxing for my post coma brain so decided to start my new musical education with 2009. So there's that, and that's there. Cheers, Eric.

Apologies for my tardiness...your stalker themed June mix is on it's way now. Enjoy...Sid

Steve

Hi Randy, Your N-T-R mix is an example of what's great about IMP. It's full of songs by artists I've not thought much about for a long time, and ones that were completely off my radar. Thanks. It's great. Steve.

Scott

glad you liked the mix ...

darren

Thanks for December.... nice sounds, and beautifully packaged!

Meredith

Ur november mix is a tad late...but on its way.

katie

mega late i know. it went out today (feb 04)

Greg

Randy - I've got ya for January... I'm not getting the year off on the right step. I just burned your disk, now I have to make a cover. It'll be in the mail next week. Sorry

katie

i did not forget you. been "wrapped up" with christmas. it'll be out soon...

Cornelius

Thank you for the mix! "When I go Deaf" is one of the best mix discs I've heard in a while. Everything agreed with me from the first time I played it. What a great collection of sonic spells. I really like "Us" by Michael Been and anybody who puts Joe Henry on a mix is a IMP friend of mine. Thanx again R#!

Meribah

Hi Randy, it's in the mail today. SO sorry about the delay, I feel terrible. Hope your world is good. Meribah

Meribah

Hi Randy, I think you're my September assignment (at least, if you're the Randy from MO). I'm so sorry, but I went on holiday & left the cd on my desk at home - what a dolt! I will get it to you as soon as possible. cheers, Meribah

Maureen

Oops! You are my May 07 assignment. But I didn't get to mailing my April mix until May 3, at which I got confused and sent you the April mix. Meanwhile, my April assignment still hasn't gotten their mix yet. Argh. Well, I hope you enjoy the mix nonetheless! M

David

Okay, Family Man...let's see a list of your likes and some of that obscure music you're looking for.

Laura

Both your mixes look tip top mister! I hope you don't go deaf, though I think many music fanatics must worry about this, yes? I do...

Herb

Cheers for the Mixtape. We always try and play one track from every one we receive on our radio show (http://www.thejoint.co.nz) and managed to squeeze in The Black Angels the other week (http://www.thejoint.co.nz/Playlists/20070317.asp) The Joint
