Last night, it was my pleasure to deejay for Mellon’s Melons at The Old Angle in Ohio City.  It was a different crowd and a different setting than most of my dj gigs (i.e., not a bunch of tune junkies at The Beachland or Blue Arrow).  Consequently, I had to lug a whole bunch of gear up and down the steps to the basement of The Old Angle.  It meant I needed 30 minutes to troubleshoot a nasty buzz from the speakers (One turntable wasn’t properly grounded).  And, it meant I got to put together a largely upbeat set of music which went deeper and wider than many of my past performances.  It couldn’t have gone any better.

Here’s a big thank you to the organizers of Mellon’s Melons and the Old Angle, and a big best of luck to you, to Terri Mellon.
