November 2, 1994

I did my first jazz show at WHPK. The DJ before me was this 75 year old guy named "Captain Bill". Here's how he introduced me (more or less): "OK now, next up is a young man named Seth... These young guys, they think they know. But they don't know." After putting on his last record, he proudly informed me that "The singer on this record is the same age as me!" I put on an Andrew Cyrille record and he warned me, "You'll never get any audience playing stuff like that!" At one point as he was lecturing me he actually drooled onto the floor.
