I suppose you could view this radio show as a sad event, because this is the final episode of The Musical Box.  It has been fun planning and hosting the show for the last two years. But next year promises to be my busiest yet, and I have to free up as much time as possible.  Maybe some ambitious DJ will take up the reigns and use my playlists for this semester as a guide, but that will most probably not occur.

We ended with a bang, trotting from S to Z.  Also, Brian, Kevin, Neil, Lindsay, and Zoe rocked it out with me.
