Merry Christmas

The Sunday Sampler takes a week off to celebrate the holiday (yet consuming large amounts of music still seems to be a large part of it). Back next week.

However, Monday Music Club goes on as planned the very next day. A chronological musical journey through the 60s and 70s, every Monday for the next 5 weeks, from 8:00 to Midnight. Lots of great oldies, some big hits, some lesser-known gems, and your requests at (724) 357-WIUP.
