039 New Year

2006 is done. Tick!

[…] I got onto someone else’s podcast. Sweet for me! __________________ waffles Radio Invading Monday Nights 6-8 Eastern Standard Time If you want a link from my blog let me know. It’s not really about anything specific, just like a college mind should be like. […]

I must say, it’s been good so far. I wish I had found out about this sooner.

Weeeeeeeee! I couldn’t think of a better group of songs to ring in the new year with.

Thanks everyone and thank you Tim for an incredible year filled with CP delight every week! Here’s to 2007 and many more fantastic CP’s!

Yes, it’s been a fabulous year with Contrast Podcast! Thanks to you all for bringing me in touch with music I’ve not heard before. I look forward to more in 2007!!

i was afraid it was going to take me until 2007 to actually listen to the whole podcast, but i finally was able to absorb all of it, and cheers to everyone who submitted this week.

here’s to a better 2007, because like the Alice Project gals sang, it can’t be any worse than 2006! 😉

[…] New Year contrast podcast! […]
