FFFreakout #488-494


Where does the time go? Another two months has passed and I’m now finally getting around to posting the weekly playlists. As I’m sure many of you can relate, that span of time as been a total blur of making the holiday rounds and all that goes with it. As for the weekly show, we’ve went through various special programming days on KMSU that resulted in an almost-hour of Neil Young one week to us taking the next week off completely. Carl also put together his annual holiday show that ended up being re-aired on New Year’s Eve due to a slight scheduling hiccup. But, it’s a new year and we’re slowly getting back into our usual weekly non-routine of surprising (i.e. challenging) each other on-air with music we appreciate, from oddball obscurities to guilty pop pleasures and to all points in between. Within the next month, we’ll be marking our 10th year of doing the weekly Free Form Freakout show on KMSU, so we’ll likely try to come up with some type of special show or something else to mark the occasion. Until then, thanks for checking in with us. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or comments.
