"Radiola Calling!" June 5, 2009

(Week 164)

RADIOLA! begins its fifth year on WHCL-FM, and this RADIOLA! is just like all the other ones, only different.

Many thanks again to George in Oregon, Mark Fuller, Ray Mitchell of the UK, Toast of New York, Randy, Rich, and The Codger.

And an especially heartfelt thanks to Jonathan Mead for letting me have my own show in June 2005. For all he knew I was some crazy person wishing to commandeer the airwaves to play totally incongruous music punctuated with inappropriate commentary. (And he let me keep doing the show when that proved to be precisely the case.)

Tune in to WHCL-FM this Friday at 8 PM Eastern (with direct streaming here). The show will be uploaded to my Live365 station presently.
