About TheGiant

Hey, I'm TheGiant, join me Fridays at 23:00 UTC for a mix of funny nerdy and weird tunes, and maybe occasionally I'll goof off on mic too.

6/9/2017 My Absence (an apology)

My apologies, family obligations and forgetfulness is the cause of my absence. I haven’t disappeared, just have been insanely busy. Going to finish the track lists that were in drafts that I never got around to posting. From this point forward I do have a reminder set on my phone so I don’t forget.

I wanted to return this week, but a napping 2yr old niece and AC issues are making that impossible. It’s like 86 degrees indoors right now.

Playlist for 4/28/17

I’ve been gone a few weeks, family stuff, birthday parties and other obligations, but I’m back, although after this week I may go back to just one hour, to leave a spot open for a new DJ.

No Show 3/24/17

Sorry there was no show on 3/24/17. My trusty 2 month old laptop had a problem with the USB port, and since it was under warranty still I went ahead and let the manufacturer handle the repairs. It might take a while though, although it was set by UPS Air over night and arrived on the 24th. MSI won’t open it for 3 business days, and the estimate for laptops is 10-25 days, I’m hoping for 10 or less. You know how companies give way out there estimates so it looks like they actually did it in less time? That’s what I am hoping is true this time, but there’s no guarantee I’ll be able to stream on the 31st either. If that is the case I will send a notice to the aNONradio list again and also post something here.

Thanks for listening, I’ll be back ASAP.

Hello there, I’m TheGiant, but you can call me Giant if you prefer, or anything else really, just don’t call me late for dinner.
