Playlist for 1-24-13

Dudes! Dudettes! Fans of amateur radio!

You guys have anything rad plan this weekend? I'm doing an 8-mile obstacle course called the Super Spartan on Saturday. So, if next week's show is broadcast live from inside my hospital room, you'll know what happened to me. Feel free to wish me luck and/or get in line to date a virile, strapping young lad such as myself.

Playlist for 1-10-13

You guys,

I really hoped you got to hear the show last night because I don't have a show at all next week, due to basketball preemption. Do you know what happens when you go cold turkey on my radio show?  When the show is discontinued immediately, the user will experience what has come to be known as a "crash" along with a number of other radio withdrawal symptoms, including paranoia, depression, exhaustion, anxiety, itching, mood swings, irritability, fatigue, insomnia, an intense craving for more radio/Kyle, and in some cases nausea and vomiting.

Well....a lot of cases of vomiting.

So here's what you missed. Good luck.

Hey folks,

You know how there are those folks that say "I like ALL kinds of music....except rap and country." Well, a) they're lying, and b) they're dumb.
