Don't Be Alarmed: SCOTTSO's Still Dead

Retro SCOTTSO grabs a selfie around Gowanus way.

Vin's Your Sonic Sommelier

KLW Program Director and overnight disc jockey Vin CYCLONE: Your sonic sommelier, only, on the KILLERWATT.

Vin CYCLONE returns to the platinum KILLERWATT microphone armed with his funky corkscrew and disco decanter. Ready to refine your musical palate? Perhaps you're only in it for the party?

Fair enough. Let the tasting begin. We'll go from delightfully ridiculous grape ... to sublime boutique vintages, cultivated in the most surprising maritime microclimate ...  along the viscous shores of the Gowanus Canal. Cin cin!

SCOTTSO Kisses the Wrong Microphone

SCOTTSO inspects KLW's antenna farm on snowy Signal Hill, Brooklyn. Photo by Fitz.

SCOTTSO caught a touch of COVID from kissing the wrong microphone. But you can't keep an old jock down. To wit, he's pictured roaming KLW's snowy antenna range in long johns and a passé mask. How KILLERWATT Engineer Ed "Fitz" Fitzgerald kept a grip on SCOTTSO's cocktail, his own, plus KLW's Rolleiflex camera ... in frigid conditions ... well, let's just say our old school Engineering department knows how to juggle big transmitters and half-in-the-bag talent. The Professor was safely returned to SCOTTSO Memorial Studio A and is ready to spin. Sure, he sounds EXTRA croaky, but that never stopped him before. Plus an all new Things From Indie. Click and play.

NOEL Blows Your Hair Back

NOEL in his milieu.

NOEL jumps the red-eye to JFK then hijacks a piano cartage truck back to Signal Hill. He's between legs of multiple tours and antsy to DJ. For the next two hours, you got a busy sound-man at KILLERWATT's controls, dominating NYC's airwaves like a boss jock should. Expect nothing less than a musical epiphany.

Click the player and get your hair blown back.

Reports of a Steinway floating in the Gowanus are greatly exaggerated. It's actually a Bosendorfer!

SCOTTSO Goes Alfresco

SCOTTSO relieves himself behind the KILLERWATT's transmitter facility, Signal Hill, Brooklyn.

During one of those long tracks, a legendary disc jockey might grab his smokes, maybe a beverage, and head out the back door. When nature calls, he goes alfresco. Keep an eye out for bitey swamp critters from the Gowanus Canal, sir!

Tonight, Retro SCOTTSO promises not a single Christmas song. Sweet relief! Plus an all new Things From Indie. Click and play.
