Last TGIFR of the year since both Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve fall on Fridays this year and there will be seasonal programming preempting regular shows for both those days (though DEFINITELY tune in for NYE since Station Manager Jared McKetiak and I will be doing a mega-countdown of our Top 20 songs and albums of the year).
This was a bit of an early Christmas present for me as I was joined in the booth by two of my favourite guests: Christopher Samms who was talking about the dissolution of Not Animals and their last show on December 22nd at the LO. Dane, aka Birdapres, came by with preview tracks from Catch an L, his new record due out in 2011, and some choice vinyl from his forays as a crate-digger.
Also, R.I.P. to Don Van Vliet, who died on the 17th...
