Playlists and updates

As you can tell, I haven't been updating the Recess blog. Usually I update the blog with playlists and notes from the current show like guests and interesting topics of conversation. Right now, all playlists are being posted here. I plan on revamping the show for the fall season with more emphasis on guests and conversation. Music will still be the backbone of the show but I am planning for more interactivity and other wild surprises which will hopefully kick into gear during the Fall semester of 2008.

Stay tuned and rock on!
