Gold Sounds 5/6/09: Last show! Crazy music after 12pm!

So this is my last scheduled show at WRPI. I'm really glad I was able to spend the last two years (more or less) as a member of and DJ at the station. Extra thanks go to Emelie for getting me involved originally, Blar for making this blog and being an awesome Music Director/person, and you for listening! It's been a lot of fun, and has definitely inspired me to become more involved with music in general. For this last show I'm going to try to play really loud/fast/tension-filled music for the last four hours (12pm to 4pm) without letting up. We'll see if I have the stamina/musical knowledge to do such a thing. I'll play a few blocks of tracks from personal favorite albums/artists as well.
