After a long hiatus…
THE BIG DIG HAS RETURNED!!
However, the show this summer has sort of relocated… instead of staying in the KXSC studio this summer, I, DJ Alex, will be embarking on an ACTUAL archaeological excavation in Siena, Italy this summer for 6 weeks.
So REALLY, get your trowels, shovels, and handpicks ready, because this summer, The Big Dig is going on an adventure, sifting through stratigraphic layers of music AND most likely 7th century BCE, Etruscan pottery pieces.
Hopefully, I will be posting about not only my adventures in the excavation trenches, but also some journeys around Italy, and of course the usual traversing through old, new, and everything-in-between music.
For this first leg of the journey, I’ll be heading to the airport (in T minus 8 hours!!) to hop on a plane to Munich then Rome. Then, I’ll loiter in Rome for a few days until I head up to Vescovado, Italy, a small town just outside of Siena where I will be excavating this summer.
You can bet that I’ve already made a preliminary summer playlist to listen to while I’m prepping to travel, which can be found here!!
I could write pages and pages explaining why I love so many of these songs, albums, and bands on this list, but just listen yourself!
Next time I’ll be updating this blog, hopefully it will be in Rome. Tune into The Big Dig soon!
