Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #884 – 8/10/2019: Special birthday guest co-host DJ Gidget Marusak of Woody Radio!

DJ Gidget Marusak from Woody Radio

On this week’s show, the perfect storm happened: my dear friend DJ Gidget, co-owner of Woody Radio, was kind enough to have her birthday on a Saturday, the day that Twirl Radio is on the air. She’s a little shy about her birthday, but I took a chance and invited her onto Twirl, to celebrate. Lo and behold–she accepted. Since we live a couple of thousand miles apart, we did this via the miracle of Skype–so we sounded like we were in the same room together. But that really doesn’t matter–we’ve had lots of long, unscripted conversations together over the years, whether or not we were in the same room. This one was like all the others–started with no fanfare, and revved up to a fun, laugh-filled chat in no time. The only difference is that you actually have the chance to eavesdrop on us this time! (Full disclosure: I do another radio show on Woody Radio, so this was kind of an unofficial visit from the “home office”!)

What did we talk about? Well, what DIDN’T we talk about? Life, serendipitous meetings, food, Indiana, California, Woody Radio, Twirl Radio, and even music. We played a bunch of Gidge-centric and Gidge-adjacent tunes. (Editor’s note: I forgot to bring along any music by Wire Train–a big oops!) She’s been one of my favorite radio personalities for a very long time–she literally always keeps it real and personal. Her greatest trait is her ability to say something completely irreverent, funny, and wrong–and also say something completely touching and heartfelt–often in the same sentence! We’ve had lots of fun capers over the years, and this show was yet another one.

Check out the radio station that she built up at www.woodyradio.com. And enjoy this marathon chat with Gidget, punctuated by some great music. Make sure to send her some belated birthday love!
