Two legends of WBCR-LP signed off for the last time today. Hannah and Annalena's Our Funky Cheese Shack has been on the air every Friday since 2007, when the girls were 7th graders. The show has made lots of people laugh over the years. Today they made a few of us cry.
Great job girls. Go conquer the world.

1.20.12 LOVES IT!

Spent an hour with road warriors Jenny Parrott and Vaughn Walters aka Loves It! playing a mess of West Virginia meets Greenwich Village meets Austin tunes. These guys freakin' SING. They weren't hyping a show, they were driving from Poughkeepsie to Worcester and decided to stop in and say hi. Now that is sweet. New album entitled YAY!

Would someone please remind me to take pics of the nice people who come to visit?
