12/14: Last Show of the Year

My plans to have a big year-end radio program for everyone to enjoy were squelched by my inability to check or use a calendar. So, while I liked having an album of the week, none of it led anywhere and ultimately I dropped the whole thing in favor of having a fun last show in the studio. Anthony wrapped up his internship by programming the entire first hour and I rounded things out with a set of new and old music I’d been listening to during the previous week.

I’ll be posting a year end favorites list, but I won’t be doing a top ten style thing. I recently read an article over at Dusted about how shitty top ten lists can be and I think I agreed with it, at least mostly. I’ll also be posting some year end mixes and uploading them through the holidays. As usual, I won’t make them available for long and will likely remove some of them because it’ll piss someone off somewhere. People will learn that sharing free music is good for business one day. Probably right before the earth explodes. Anyways, look out for fun Youtube videos and other such things.

Enjoy your holidays!
