The No. 1 Playlist in Heaven <2.15.09>

All things come to an end. Even quicker they do when an economic recession (depression?) is in full swing. Unwavering in my indecision, I have lost my show because there is no time (and money) anymore for such flights of fancy. All I have left to give is this final playlist. A new show waits somewhere in the future I can only imagine, the question is how long.

For now, listen to Digital Love. It's great! (Saturdays 6-8pm, same station.)

Final thoughts, questions, wayward adulation?


Finally, down to business.
