Meet Your DJ

Michelle Tanner 
Night Train
Mondays 10:30-1:00am
 
Q1What can people expect when they tune into the Night Train?
A diverse mix of Americana music including progressive country, bluegrass, folk, roots & blues music.
 
Q2: How long have you been a DJ for KRCL?  Do you remember how your first show went? 
Since April 2008 (wow its been 9 years!) I started on "Training Wheels", spent two years on Wednesdays early morning with "The Morning Train" before switching to "Night Train". My first Night Train show is memorable - my job is a flight nurse and I worked a 12 hr shift the day of my first show. When I got a call for a flight at 3:30 I thought it would be no problem, but weather encountered with the helicopter had us turn back, land and take an ambulance to our destination, followed by a fixed wing flight, and two more long ambulance legs. I showed up late for my first show by about an hour. Lucky Brian Kelm stayed for me. It hasn't happened again in 7 years but it's one of the risks I take.
 
Q3If your music collection fell into a black hole, what three albums would you immediately replace?
Eilen Jewell: Letters from Sinners and Strangers 
Robert Earl Keen: No. 2 Live Dinner 
Sarah Jarosz: Undercurrent
 
Q4: If a time machine were invented and you had access to one, what concert in the past would you go to?
The Kruger Brothers @ Ogden High School where Chamber Orchestra Ogden and originally choreographed dance with Imagine Ballet Theatre brought together a magical banjo themed concerto of Music from the Spring and Appalachian Concerto.
 
Q5: Do you remember the first concert you ever went to?  
Blood, Sweat & Tears @ The Salt Palace in 1968
 
Q6: Anything else you want KRCL listeners to know?  
I love the opportunity to represent KRCL with my favorite music. My tastes might not have broad appeal but I have some passionate listeners who like what I play. It's rewarding. I am also a frequent sub for the Bluegrass Express. I have a vast knowledge in bluegrass music and artists. It's my favorite.
