Regrets, Recriminations and Resolutions Show


It's the end of the year, a time to try and reckon with all that bad behavior. Here's a show about the stuff you did that you want to give up, the stuff you don't want to give up but should and the stuff you didn't do and want to do (not to mention what you want the ones who are near and dear to you to do or not to do).

Didn't you play Butterfield's "Drunk Again" in there someplace, or was it just wishful thinking on my part?

Steve Provizer said...

You're right, my friend. Apologies. The way I do these posts is to download the WZBC archive and since they archive hour by hour and I played that at the top of the hour, there were issues in the process.

OK, good. So maybe that was you spinning "Temptation" by Perry Como?

Steve Provizer said...

No, you must have been channel-surfing and stumbled on the All-Crooner station.
