The last podcast is up! Thanks to all who ever listened, to all who shared their music, to all who made it what it was (you know who you are)!

LAST SHOW:

This week’s episode will be my last. I will not be hosting a show for an extended period of time in my upcoming future. I will be channeling energy into other endeavors. I enjoyed the year on-air quite a bit and plan to continue on the show when I return. For those of you who listened, I think you are amazing; because we all know that community radio DJ’s never really know if anyone is actually listening. A special thanks to Josh, Aliah, Chelsea and Joyce for taking photos, and Joyce (again) and Matt for teching. To all the local musicians who submitted music and played live sets, it was a pleasure meeting all of you. The local scene is up to something and I got a sense it’s gonna blow our minds.

So tune in this week Sunday, June 12th, for the last live performance of Back Alley Jams, with The Pawnshop Manual. A very interesting musical project. As always 5-6pm on CFUV 101.8FM or click here to listen online.
