Next week, the schedule changes at WMBR on account of all the schoolies getting their finals on and moving on to their fun summer jobs and internships. To celebrate, I'll be spinning my favorite new releases of the semester.

A bit later, I'll be out at Davis Square spinning \m/BROJAMS\m/ for the Tufts crowd, the Davis scene and that kickball team that keeps coming in from the rain.
