Liminal Zone

The Liminal Zone is a place for sounds and songs to collide, overlap, and hopefully fall into sync with one another

In other words, it's a mix show

If you tune in you might hear post-punk become new-wave become disco become funk become techno become electro become jazz become tape hiss noises swelling from a bed of synth waves become cosmiche become britpop become experimental electronic avant garde sound collage become riot grrl become footwork, drum and bass, grime become soul, alt pop become shoegaze, drone, doom metal, mystical folk rock become house become, well, mostly house... I like house a lot, honestly, you'll probably hear a lot of house :P 

You'll probably not hear me talk a lot

Maybe some weeks you'll hear someone else in the studio performing a guest mix and talking with me about what inspired them to create that mix! or just about music, or about a super tasty rad meme, or a terrible movie

Maybe then you might actually hear me talk

Who knows? I don't! I haven't done one of these shows yet!

I hope you tune in and find out what kind of mess this will end up being!

    Kind of an actual #Springlike Day in the ROC!! :P Well, until that everpresent Rochester cloudcover came back to obstruct all of them sunny vibes :(((((
    SOOO, I took it upon myself to bring ya'll some sunshine in the form of some disco and italo edits, weirdo electronic, some janky mixing here and there, weird quips about the full moon, how low key is a weird name for a dj with a friggin radio show (what's low key about that eh?), and shouts out to my friends in the WP! All in all, not terribly awkward, actually quite fun!!

  • Liminal Zone 008: May 11th 2019 Aired: Saturday, May 11, 2019

    For Episode 8 I invited my partner in crime, life, and love, Cody, onto the show to co-host and select some choice cuts that she really loves! Went into this one by selecting a bunch of our personal records and lugging em into the WAYO studio, not really knowing what we'd end up playing. We just kinda did a back 2 back thang and played off of one another. The mixing is pretty loose, but we had a ton of fun :P
    Thanks as always for your support, awesome comments, and for tuning in!
    Much Love Ya'll

  • Liminal Zone 007: May 4th 2019 Aired: Saturday, May 4, 2019

    This weeks show focuses on fuzzy rock, chillwave, and shoegaze types of vibes. Things eventually settle into a 100 bpm groove before detouring back into the fuzz!
    Hope ya'll enjoy!

  • Liminal Zone 006: April 27th 2019 Aired: Saturday, April 27, 2019

    This week was a very special show! It was the first one where I got to collaborate with another dj; the always wonderful, always funky, Erick Noren ( He popped me over a sweet 30 minute mini-mix that's been getting me grooving the past few days, and, with his gracious consent, I decided to play it as part of my show today, with me bookending it with some tasty selections.

  • Liminal Zone 005: April 20th 2019 Aired: Saturday, April 20, 2019

    Kind of a dreary and drizzly Saturday in the ROC, a good environment for playing some fuzzy indie rock, stoner metal, motorik, shoegaze, and other such chill stuff. It was 4-20 so I said "stoned" a lot on air :P 
    As always, listen live, anywhere, anytime @ or on the actual friggin fm dial if you're in the city of Rochester @ 104.3fm
    Thanks as always for your support!
    Much Love peeps

  • Liminal Zone 004: April 13th 2019 Aired: Saturday, April 13, 2019

    Super solid Spring vibes in the ROC this Saturday, so I tried to keep the vibes a chuggin' on the sunsoaked side of house and techno at a steady 104.3 ;P Lot's of elegant harp pluckin', toasted steel drum, deep azz basslines, and some choice acid house cuts from them enviable early 90s! (oh, and my talkovers are getting better?! whoaness!)
    Anyhoots, Thanks Ya'll for listenin!

    Week 3 of the radio show!
    I changed the name (slightly)
    I made a logo!
    I was actually live in studio for this one (I had been prerecording since I had been going out of town during my slot) I spun some house live on the air, which was nerve wracking during the lead up, but turned out to be tons of fun once I was in the moment. I did manage to mess my opening up though, couldn't find the right cue o__0 actual music starts nearly 2 mins in >---<

    Thanks for LIstening!!!

  • The Liminal ZoneOut 002: March 30th 2019 Aired: Saturday, March 30, 2019

    Week 2 of genre bending madness and hella awkward talkovers. This episode runs through avant-noise crooning, ambient, modular electronic, krautrock, glam, motorik pysch, heavy techno, hip-hop, trip-hop, and bedroom pop (pretty much in that order!) Pretty much locked in at 82 bpm through the duration

    Enjoy ya'll, and Thanks for Listening!
