Picking music for your midnight radio station can certainly be a difficult choice… especially when you have to deal with a fool of a manager.
This doesn’t really feel like much of a short story. More like a little segue, look into Kitty’s daily life, managing her station manager. It did help to crystalize some of the ways in which she views the world though and highlight that before or else, she is a werewolf first and sees things in terms of animal nature of instincts.
Kitty is so clearly an alpha figure in this story. It’ll be interesting how this works into an urban fantasy world. There’s not many stories which feature a strong, female werewolf without a whole slew of issues from her male contemporaries.
Since this really felt more like an anecdote than a story, I don’t really have all that much to say about this. It was fun, easy and makes me keen to sink my teeth into Kitty and the Midnight Hour.
