February 4th

Hey All,

This week's show was a repeat (an "encore presentation" as the big shots call it)...if you heard anything you want to know more about, send me an email at I'll do my best to find the old playlist if it exists.

I didn't get to a new show last week because I was down at Duke University's Center for Documentary Studies. This place is awfully darn good...folks from all walks of life take courses down there. If you've ever been interested in making some radio, check them out. Don't let the Duke name scare ya...I'm certain I could never have gotten into Duke, but they're more than willing to teach me how to make radio.

I'll be back next week with some good new stuff...
