Floydian Slip’s Bizarre Collection of Antiques & Curios #7: WEXP promo

Posted March 18, 2015 by Floydian Slip

As we lead up to “Floydian Slip” Show #1,000 the week of June 8, we’re digging into the archives to share relics from the show’s past.

wexpBy 1994, I was on my second job out of college at a start-up stand-alone FM station in Burlington, Vt., called WEXP “Experience 105.1.”

The station launched in summer ’94, and by December I’d convinced station management to let me revive “Floydian Slip” as a late-night offering.

Station program director Joel Bolton suggested we air the show on the new moon — when the moon was dark. It was a clever tie-in to “The Dark Side of the Moon,” but it probably made it difficult for the show to build any sort of fan base, since new moons don’t appear on the same day of the month every month.

That and the station went dark by summer 1995.

Here’s a promo for that first WEXP show, which aired Friday, Dec. 2, 1994, at 11 p.m. EST.

While WEXP’s studios were state-of-the-art all-digital facilities — rare for that time — this promo was archived on a 120-minute cassette, which, like many 2-hour cassettes, didn’t employ the highest quality tape.

Interestingly, though I started the show at Ithaca College’s 106-VIC in 1989, this WEXP show is actually Show #1, since this is when I began numbering shows.
