Fighting thee doldrums on The Wrong Side of the Tracks, Wed 7-8 pm

Let me start off by saying I'm no optimist. Don't let anyone fool you. So far, 2009 has shown little love to the ol'muldozer...

I generally play & enjoy somber, moody music which has only anchored me further into the hole that is January.SO I've decided to 'spin' some more upbeat, rockin' tunes (EDGEY?) for the inaugural '09 Wrong Side of the Tracks . Here ya go:

1. THE FALL- mr. pharmacist

2. IGGY & THE STOOGES- your pretty face is going to hell

3. TH' LOSIN' STREAKS (sacramento)- he's waiting (the sonics)

Vote to expand LPFM at social change websites

Our understanding is that the transition teams in the new administration, including those at the FCC, will be using some social change websites to guage interest on certain issues. Help LPFM stations like our stay healthy by supporting the expansion of the LPFM service to larger cities and towns.

Update: This initiative finished in 7th place in the technology policy- not bad considering "finish adopting the metric system" was in the top 3, which went on to the next round.
