A New Year’s Eve Celebration!

Three... Two...

A New Year’s Eve Celebration!
(Featuring audio recordings that celebrate, question, consider, and move on toward the impending new year.)

Broadcasting on a holiday is always a bit of a strange affair.  Most everyone else is enjoying themselves, while you’re actually working.  There is a certain kind of loneliness that sets in under those kinds of circumstances.  While is why for New Year’s Eve, I decided to throw a party.

Aided by a few recordings that offer insight into this unusual holiday, I mix up a batch of songs about looking forward, onward, and into the future that is rapidly approaching.  The cool thing about this show is that you could play it just before Midnight.  If you start it about five minutes after 10 PM, it should time out just right.

Either way, I had a lot of fun assembling this one, and I hope you enjoy listening to it.  This is our last broadcast in 2011.  On to new and different things in 2012.

See you in a year and seven.
