Nine Redemption

September 9, 2009 at 12:11 pm Leave a comment

About 10 years ago, my radio show was on Thursday evenings. And so it happened that on 9/9/99, I found myself on the air, doing a microphone break at (according to our clock) 9:09 p.m.

It wasn’t until days later that I realized what song I should have played at that moment. Of course. “Number nine … number nine … number nine …”

I got redemption today, because the station needed a fill-in for the morning hours. So at 9:09 a.m. on 09/09/09, “Revolution 9” got the spin it’s been waiting a decade for. Yes!

(I really am this geeky. Sorry.)

This was a very last-minute thing. I packed the rest of the hour with anything I could conjure off the top of my head that had to do with “9,” and rounded out the show with the colossal Beethoven’s 9th. I do dislike playing such familiar songs on-air — even music-geek favorites like Genesis’ “Apocalypse in 9/8” — but it was for a good cause, namely, my unhealthy numbers obsession. If for some reason you want to see the playlist, it’s here.
