Party Over Here!


Hey folks—I am so excited! I am excited about doing the show, and our new format, and—like just about everyone on the show—our new time.

What a lot of folks don't know is that we're a Los Angeles-based crew that has been doing our show live at 6 a.m. That meant we had to arrive at 4 a.m. That meant we were always sleepy.

Now that our show is live at 10 a.m. PDT (1 p.m. EDT)—we're able to hit more of the day's headlines AND function on a full night's sleep. Call it a win-win.

A big shout-out to all the people who stream and podcast us around the world. We just got a letter from Kuwait and another from Mexico City.

We've got a lot of excitement coming up, including our Sex and Sexuality series this month. Stay tuned for more. And thanks!

P.S.—if you're wondering what the pix is, it's a countdown to our new time... every day we'd mark our progress. That's how thrilled we were.

I'm happy you're happy but it may take me awhile to be happy myself. The new time change means I can't listen to the show on my way to work. I have to wait until 10pm to try and download a podcast or two.
However, being from L.A. originally, I wouldn't wish getting out at 4am on anybody, so congratulations!!

By the way, will you ever address African Americans in classical music?
