OEP 7/7/20: Marcus Fischer guest mix

July 8, 2020

Huge thank you to my PDX friend Marcus Fischer for putting together this guest mix. I have known him for over a decade, and before he went ambient big w/ 12k he was the one putting together all the ambient show fliers and playing most of them (all for free of course). He is the guy that you go on tour with and he plays different sets every show while you play the same exact thing every stop. He is the best!

I was on a zoom w/ the executive of XRAY, Klyph, Ambush, and others the night before Blackout Tuesday, wondering what to do for the next day's broadcast. We hoped to go silent the entire day, but weirdly enough it's illegal to not broadcast on FM and we could lose our license (big deal). I decided to play music the first 30min by black artists I admire, play speeches the next 30min by black voices, then I handed it off to Ambush of the black run The Numberz radio station (96.7 PDX) for the last hour. This is the first section, listen to the podcast on www.xray.fm for the full show.
