around here at wrmc things are quite sleepy, since santa is bringing the station a makeover, and is bringing us lots of vinyl to move around come january. i hope that winter break has treated everyone splendidly, and that family has not made everyone completely 100% nuts.

so, in the spirit of the end of 2008, i thought i’d make some lists! who doesn’t like lists!? so without further ado:
