Dark Shadow Recording does a very cool thing recognizing dj’s

Stephen Mougin “The success of our artists wouldn’t be possible without DJs all over the world, who often don’t get the recognition they deserve. Every week we pay tribute and feature one of them as the “DJ OF THE WEEK”.

Docs-roadhouseradio Thank you Dark Shadow Recording, your recognition of DJ’s is a very cool extra step to take. Particularly so for small market, community radio hosts such as myself. I am honored* Thank you.

For those who think radio is a thing of the past…think again…Doc

Hello Mike,

Thank you so much for having Becky Buller on your show last month!

Last year we started our “DJ Of The Week” feature on our social media.

We would like to feature you and your radio show.  Please, kindly send us a photo of you (that we can share), a short blurb that describes your show, and a fun fact about you, your show, or bluegrass in general.

Thank you in advance!

We appreciate all you do for bluegrass music!

This came through, and I would like to pass it on to you.  It was you who conducted the interview after all, and you are a great supporter of Becky’s music.  I copied your e-mail on to my response, so they have your contact info.

Hello Jana,

I am genuinely honored to be Dark Shadow Recording’s DJ of the Week, which Michael McAllister has generously passed on to me.  It was entirely due to Mike’s efforts that the interview was scheduled, after which he approached me as KSJD’s IBMA member/bluegrass guy to become involved, so I share the honor with many thanks to Mike.

When Mike asked if I would be interested in doing the interview, I paused long enough to catch my breath and say yes.  I had previously met Ms. Buller and have a couple of her earlier CD’s signed to Docs Roadhouse-radio.  So I knew of Ms. Buller, her well-deserved accolades, her involvement with the IBMA, and from our first meeting, what a truly fine person she is.

I believe I speak for both Mike and myself in saying that it was extremely generous of Becky Buller and her band of outstanding musicians to travel 100 miles round trip to visit with us at KSJD and give a live on-air performance, particularly with two shows coming up the same evening at the Durango Bluegrass Meltdown. Thank you B3!

About Doc’s Roadhouse Radio (dubbed “where Bluegrass meets Country” by Darrell Scott, referencing his collaborations with Tim O’Brien): I started the weekly 2 hour show on KSJD almost 12 years ago with a primary focus on Bluegrass along with a mix of pre – 1990’s  Country, Western Swing, Folk and contemporary Americana. I named the show Doc’s Roadhouse as a nod to Doc Watson because of his formative influence on my musical direction & interests. When I was 14 my family had the privilege of hosting Doc Watson, his father-in-law fiddler Gaither Carlton, and son Merle during a weekend folk festival at Cornell University. Merle (who was also 14 at the time) and I stayed up all night talking and playing guitars, and Sunday morning Doc graced us with a mini concert in our living room playing my Guild D-40. Needless to say, it was the experience of a lifetime.

Thank you again to Dark Shadow Recording.  I think it is very cool that you are recognizing DJ’s the way you are.

Please let me know if you need any additional information.
