HINT FOR SATURDAY NIGHT’S THEME (12.31.11)

28 Dec

Will you be ringing in the new year or wringing out the old? I’ll be doing a little of each in the penultimate hour of 2011. Resolve to join me at 10:00 PM, Saturday night.

Live radio on WMNR, Fine Arts Radio, and wmnr.org

NO SHOW…NO PLAYLIST…BUT HERE’S A BONUS!

25 Dec

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday. Turntable For One took a break this week, getting ready for the New Year’s Eve show. Resolve to be listening Saturday night, December 31st at 10:00 PM.

Meanwhile, a friend sent me the link below, knowing that I am always looking for ways to increase my audience.
