12/29/17 Best of 2017 / KTUH Fri. 6am-noon

Posting back here to post today's playlist, which takes a look at just some of my favorite music from such a chaotic year. As usual, I added a list of background (interstitial) music for today's year-end show, as those artists are worth checking out as well. Today's show is a 6-hour special (which even then wasn't enough to fit all the music I enjoyed this year), subbing in for the 6-9am timeslot.

Haven't been posting here since I moved my playlists to Spinitron, which links to the main KTUH website. My past playlists can be found at my Spinitron page. Some of my friends and fellow DJs have suggested posting other music-related stuff, so I might do that in the future.

Thanks for tuning in! Have a wonderful 2018!

12/29/16 Best of 2016 / KTUH SUB Thurs. noon-3pm

Apologies for not posting my playlists here lately.  I've been posting them through KTUH's Spinitron. My recent playlists can be found at this link.

My last show of 2016, looking back at some of my favorite tracks of the year.  There were a lot of great music released this year, which is a positive light in what has otherwise been a very difficult year.  Tried to fit tracks I loved more than the rest of the bunch into a three hour set, and I hope you all enjoyed.

I do want to thank everyone for their continued listenership of KTUH, and to everyone who called in today or this past year.  Have a safe celebration, and happy new year!
