Christmas Carols, Athens Style

So it seems that the latest R.E.M. Christmas single is out and features quite the interesting array of songs. I’m posting no spoilers here but I’m rather fond of this year’s song. Though I will always hear this version in my head when I think of that title… Anyway, I thought it might be cool […]

Playlist: Relax, The Year is Almost Over

We’re all stressed this time of year. Worrying when we should be merry making, studying for finals, moving, cleaning, cooking, etc. can really wear you down. What you need is a bit of relaxation, perhaps some tunes to get you through the day and into a calmer place. So we made a playlist for just […]

The AthensMusicJunkie Fall Playlist

Congrats to Matt M. for winning our Monday contest. Epic playlist is epic. Cd’s in the mail dude. As for us, we made our own little local version of an Autumn playlist. Well, the ones that were on Youtube anyway. Fall to me always meant a little bit of sleepiness, a bit of relaxation, and […]

The Final Bow: My Last WUOG Shift

The old place in Memorial… So this is it. The last time I’m ever going to click on the mic, read some nearly impossible to pronounce PSA from our crack PR team, and watch that “On Air” light slowly fade to black. Ok, maybe I’ll be back for alumni events and whatnot but tonight, I’m […]

Spring Break 2010 Playlist of DOOM

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a college student in possession of a trust fund must be in want of a good time. However little known the feelings or views of such a student may be on his first entering a college town, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the […]

Mike Mills at WUOG

I never thought I’d get to see it happen but there he was, along with Kevin O’Neil, walking up the stairs in front of Memorial Hall, both carrying tons of vinyl. His hair was longer than I remembered it being in the show in ATL, but it was him alright. Mike Mills. It was the […]
