The Not-So-Hectic Eclectic Playlist 5/7/15

Hey everybody! Today’s show marked the broadcasting debut of Trevor Strong’s Aliens in the Soda Machine and Other Strange Tales. I was joined in the studio for a little while by Dr. Ham (of Dr. Ham’s Dance Party). He gave the song two thumbs up! Yay!

Anyone out there in the blogosphere know a song by a band with something about the word postal in the name and has stuff about the moon landing in it? Asking for a listener… Dr. Ham and I wracked our brains and could not figure it out.

Okay without further ado…

The Not-So-Hectic Eclectic Returns to WRKC

Hey everybody! This is just a heads up that the radio show I host as a volunteer over at WRKC begins today from 1p-3p Eastern. I’ll be there over the summer, rockin and rollin and what-not, Thursdays (1-3p) playing a mix of new music and 90s tunes. Occasionally there will be interviews, but today, this first day of the return to the show it is all about the songs. I’ll be posting playlists here at the blog after each show, so if you tune in and miss the name of an artist or song that you like, you’ll be able to find it.

Just click the big red thing that says “Listen Live”
