Nine Questions 

Duncan Hudson is the music director at community radio station KXCI FM 91.3, celebrating its 25th anniversary in November. Hudson, 39, has been with the station since 1999. He is married with two daughters and plays guitar in Beatnik Dream Vacation.

What was the first concert you ever saw?

The first concert I ever bought a ticket to was for Ozzy Osbourne--but then (Osbourne's guitarist) Randy Rhoads died, and the show was canceled. So the first I went to was The Police on the Synchronicity tour.

What CDs are in your changer right now?

The Iguanas, If You Should Ever Fall on Hard Times; Juana Molina, Un Dia; Anat Cohen, Notes From the Village; Cherryholmes III: Don't Believe; Deerhoof, Offend Maggie.

How many total albums do you own (CDs, vinyl, cassettes, 8-tracks)?

Thousands of LPs, a bunch of boxes of old cassettes ... and CDs? A lot.

Do you download music, and if so, legally or illegally?

Whenever I have, it's been for the station, so it's always legally.

What was the first album you owned?

In the seventh-grade, I bought a Loverboy album, but inside was Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks.

What song would you like to have played at your funeral?

I would like to have friends of mine play live music--maybe something they created for the occasion.

Musically speaking, what do you love that your friends don't know about? What's your favorite guilty pleasure?

There's dub reggae. I don't feel guilty about it, but whenever I have some free listening time, that's what I always put on.

What band or artist changed your life, and how?

In college, I'd go down to the Cellar (in the UA Student Union) and listen to local bands. Al Perry and the Cattle and other local bands really opened me up to homegrown music.

Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?

When we were little, my brother and I listened to three albums all the time--the Beatles' Abbey Road, Stevie Wonder's Talking Book and the first America album. It'd have to be one of those.
