I mean, it was right there in the lyrics to one of the excellent songs off this past Wednesday’s mix: Don’t call it a comeback. Because sure, although it had been a while, once things got going it was hard to even remember the times we’d gone without. You know what I’m talking about, right? The return of…THE LAVA PROJECTOR!
Oh c’mon, now, you know I’m just playin’. While sure, yes, the return of a trippy sixties light show in that previously dark corner of the studio was certainly something to celebrate, what we REALLY had cause to get excited about was the return of the one and only DJ MLB. Michelle Leslie Brown to some, Major League Baseball to others (lol, Danielle!)–however you attribute those letters, what we know is that we’d missed them. Like DJ Lil’ Noleum, DJ MLB is a big fan of the songs database, so she confirmed that her return also heralded that every song on her playlist was one that had never graced the DDPP soundsystem before. And yet! Somehow that night’s playlist managed to feel familiar, and so in no time folks were step touchin’ their way across the room, struttin’ and clappin’ along to everything our DJ had brought in her musical basket of goodies. Thanks, MLB, for finding your way home to us…rumor has there’s no place quite like it. ;^)
And now, the tunes!
