DJ Tahnee spins an all-vinyl Roulette

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Tue Dec 18 2012 11:57 AM ]

Old-school DJ and noise musician Tahnee Udero played Song Roulette with us this week. She has a serious holiday music fetish—specifically Halloween and Christmas—that makes me dig her shows even more. Hear Udero spin Christmas music with DJ Mello on KUNM’s Afternoon Freeform on Monday, Dec. 24, from 1:30-4 p.m. Listen online at or tune your dial to 89.9 FM. Night owls can also tune in to Udero’s Christmas edition of Music to Soothe the Savage Beast on Tuesday, Dec. 25, from 10 p.m.-1 a.m. Check out sound and video from her random tracks below.
