WRKC: The Not-So-Hectic Playlist 5/21/14

Is it that time already? It goes fast when you're having fun.

It also goes fast when Sue Henry is zapping you with old-timey electric do-hickeys.


Another great, fun week on the air. I managed to get the whole day away from the day job so I started the show early this time. An extra 45 minutes in which to blast music loudly. YES!

Without further ado,

WRKC: The Not-So-Hectic Eclectic Playlist 5/14/14

For anyone just stumbling onto this blog, The Not-So-Hectic Eclectic is on WRKC ( ) Wednesdays from 1p-3p over the summer. It's a mix of 90s and current alternative.

This week's show really felt like summer, even though it is still spring, mostly because of the heat in downtown Wilkes-Barre, but also because for me it was once again a lot of fun. Even though I had to try to soothe the ire of Dr. Ham's dishwashing monkey... (don't ask)
