Last Playlist 5/17/10

I'm not sure if anyone really checks in with this blog, but on the off chance that you do, thanks for listening to my show! After three years of being on the air I've decided to call it quits (at least for now) and move on to other things. I've had an amazing time playing these tunes for you and I'll always remember my years at WHUS fondly. If you've enjoyed my show and would like to stay up to date with what I'm listening to, you can check out my other blog, Mixed. It's not just about music, but I usually post about a favorite tune or artist on Mondays.

So that's, it. Here is my last playlist. I tried to cram as many favorites in there as possible. I hope you enjoyed it because I certainly did.

Song Question

A while back someone called me asking about a particular song that I played during my Radiothon show in March. Sadly, my playlist for that show seems to have disappeared. I think that the song in question was by Eugene McGuinness off of his self titled album. Don't remember the name of the track, though. Hope that helps!
