Playlist for 01 October 2007 Options | Ta ta for now

Dear listeners: This will be my last regularly scheduled show on WFMU for some time, as I am moving away from the area. It has been a supreme joy and honor to do three hours of weekly radio on the greatest radio station in the world, and to share it with you, the greatest radio audience in the world. I may return to the airwaves (and streams) someday, so if you'd like me to keep you posted of any upcoming radio activity, please drop me a line. Thanks for listening!
