Unveiling the new blog

April 2, 2008

I’m wiping the slate clean, and starting over with a brand new blog… I’d gotten a little behind on posts in December 2007 – but then in early January 2008 the station was attacked and BURNED DOWN – AARRRRRGGHHH

Sorry – where was I? Needless to say, things got a little wonky for a while… So here we are. I’ve changed horses from Blogger to WordPress, and so far I’m quite happy with the results. This is an attempt on my part to better post my playlists, and hopefully bring you back now and again to see what other items might be posted. Enjoy, and stay tuned…
