Joe & Pete Take the Night Off to Let 2009 Take Over

To most, 2009 is already a distant memory, but WMSE can’t completely let go of the previous year’s worth of releases, both local and national alike, no matter how ready, set, go, everyone else is. Our DJs and staff put together some of their favorites in our ‘top picks’ list, which went to post on Sonic Diet, last week to round up an awesome year of music.

Tonight, from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., WMSE Station Manager Tom Crawford will be putting the spotlight on these collective lists and highlighting a few from each contributor. From Levon Helm to Those DarlinsPeter BrotzmannKid Millions and Yo La Tengo, what we’ve been digging for the past year will be played and given props before 2010 releases its musical hounds. Post-punk and hardcore mayhem makers, Joe and Pete are kindly letting Crawford rule the airwaves for this best-of program and will be back in all their bantering glory next week. Tune in at 91.7 FM on your radio dial or online at, live or in the archives.
