So long, it’s been good to know you. This is the last Vagabond Shoes show, as we make way for the  new schedule at WTJU.  Back when we started this blog, many DJs were still writing their playlists on paper; we were ahead of the curve in posting on-line. Now, you can access the playlists for any show via the WTJU web site, as well as a whole lot more. So while I’ll be hopping over to Jumping on the Bed on Saturdays, between 4-6 pm, alternating with the Monster of Happiness, my intention is for this site to go dormant. If for some reason I feel the need to blog as part of a show, I’ll post a link here to wherever that might be happening, though, again because of the new and improved capacities of the station web site, I don’t foresee that as happening anytime in the immediate future.

Thanks for listening these almost five years.
