No Show Tomorrow

Please note that there will be no radio show this week. I currently find myself at a stock trading seminar in Houston, TX, where they dance just as good as they walk.

We'll be previewing tracks from their forthcoming album, Everything is Working Out Fine in Some Town. We'll also be giving away free passes to their big album release show next Thursday, June 16th at Mercy Lounge with Heypenny & Modern Skirts.

So go on ahead and tune in, fools. Catch it this afternoon from 1:00 to 3:00 - 91 on the 1 in radioland or at in your cubicle at your crap day job.
