8/31/2014 - Final Minutes of @FunkShui1690 on @CJLO1690am

My, where does the time go?

After 2 years of FunkShui (aka CJLO’s “Other Asian Show”…though I’m sure that’s how they refer to BFTE), our favorite animated and crazy hosts have decided to call it quits, in order to pursue their career endeavors. Marina is heading to McGill and Patricia to Concordia (incidentally, home of CJLO). I

It’s especially sad for me to see them go, since we’ve collaborated together on different projects (not just radio) and the result was always a blast. Those girls are so geeky and nuts at the same time, that it was impossible not to enjoy every moment in their presence! Not only that, but they were the only other show that heavilly took advantage of social media in order to broaden their fanbase. And let’s not forget those awesome Powerpuff Girls-esque promotional drawings of every episode!

I had no choice but to drop in and capture the last few minutes of this awesome show LIVE…and share it with you right here!

That said, with shibuya1690's hiatus and funkshui1690's retirement, it's now up to theviberoom-radio and to hold down the Asian-Voice collective at cjlo ! Mel, it’ll be tough without those guys, but we got this! ;)

————————-My first Tumblr Post!

Just came back from the CJLO 2014 Diego Awards! It was quite fun as I got to be involved with the musical entertainment, by DJ’ing a good 1 and 1/2 hour set at the beginning and about 20 minutes at the intermission. 

I played a ton of 80’s-Early 2000’s goodies (BBD, Funkdoobiest, Cypress Hill, ATCQ, New Edition, Midnight Star, Spice Girls, Run-DMC, Dis’n’Dat, Janet, and a ton of other stuff that I don’t usually get the chance to play). People seemed to be quite pleased with the selection. I am so rusty at mixing, though!

As for the awards themselves, no I did not take any home this year. But remember, it doesn’t matter if you win an award and it doesn’t matter if you win 10 awards! Your work speaks for itself and that is what will define your legacy!

I remind you again, as I do every year…Grammy Awards 1990 - The Best Rap Performance winner was Young MC (for Bust a Move). Mr. Young defeated the likes of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, Public Enemy, and De La Soul.

Today, Public Enemy is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. De La Soul is still touring and making music. And you all know where the Fresh Prince is right now! And where is Young MC? Delivering pizzas? Nobody has ever seen him since!

The best award that you can ever receive is the respect of your peers and audience!

However, much respect to the winners! Radio stations are a team-effort, therefore, everyone is a winner!
