This week I had originally wanted to do a theme - something like Holiday themed or Leaving themed, based of the idea that both Charlie & I are getting the hell out of dodge next week. The Leaving themed was actually based on the song Anywhere but Here we played. It ended up that we wanted to make the best hour & a half of radio as possible, since it's the year end show cause neither of us will be here next week. I'll try & make it to the studio this week to prerecord something, but goddamn I'm busy. We'll see.

Take care till the new year!

Hope that satiates you till next Sunday!
