The Not-So-Hectic Eclectic Playlist 5-21-15

…and another fine day it was at the WRKC studios. The station is working on a super-secret mellow show which will have little stingers and liners with my voice, though I am not hosting it.

Yesterday and during the show today I was in search of a hashtag to use as short hand for the show and I am pleased to say that WE HAVE A WINNER.

#radiofreereggie

So that will be the social media shorthand from here on out for the Not-So-Hectic Eclectic. Use that to tell me about a band, ask for a request, or tell me about skunk ape sightings. Not that I’ve seen any skunk apes in Wilkes-Barre, but you never know. Wilkes-Barre can be pretty wacky sometimes.

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…
