I’ve got my robe and slippers on in the studio for probably the last time. Tonight’s my last show hosting the Afterglow. It’s a bit surreal, really. Thanks for all the requests and the support over the last year and a half; I truly appreciate it. Tonight, I’ll be doing something a bit different. The playlist is a combination of my favorites, listener favorites, and some new stuff (to keep things fresh). A bit of a best-of, if you will. As usual, the playlist is going up live below.

It’s Afterglow time again! It’s good to be back in the studio after the holiday break. Tonight I’ve got a bit of an announcement to make. All things must end, and January 20th will be my last show. I’m moving on to do new things in the world. Don’t worry, the show isn’t going anywhere. We’ve got a couple of great people lined up who are going to be carrying the torch after I depart. Look forward to a bit of a “best of” next week to go through some of my favorite tracks from the past year or two, plus plenty of new stuff.
