HINT:

Well, I’m more than ready to wring out the old year with a year-end review of all the Turntable For One highlights from 2018. I’m sure I’ll find some. I’ve got till Saturday night to keep looking. (Pictured above: the Turntable For One combined New Year’s and Pasty Party from last year. We won’t be making that messy mistake again.)

I make up the themes, I plan the music, I create the playlist, I even commissioned an portrait of myself to sit in for me when I can’t make it to the radio station. Think Turntable For One can’t get any more self-indulgent? You’re in for a surprise on Saturday.
