Fense’s Radio Show: December 7, 2012

A long night, but no matter. I learned long ago that spending a bit extra time doing something you love… well, it’s a good thing! Stuarto sent along a text asking if I could pick up his 8pm show and I obliged. Being a mere few hours from show time, I just threw together an… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: December 7, 2012

Fense’s Radio Show: November 23, 2012

Alright, so I have a treat for you. Being that I spent Thanksgiving week on vacation in Vancouver, WA with my parents — yes, a full week — I was out of town for my normal Friday show. Rather than having Stuarto cover for me, as holidays aren’t the best for extra shifts at the… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: November 23, 2012

Still, none of the likened-to-this, or sounds-like-that do this… Continue reading Social Studies: Terracur (MP3)

Social Studies [Feature]

Imagine the pre-Islands band The Unicorns in all their glory; that album, Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone. Now think of their triumphant return, matured a decade and now female-fronted. The songs are no longer bizarre and there’s been a complete turnaround when it comes to their accessibility to the general public. Imagine… Continue reading Social Studies [Feature]
