12/4/2009 Radio Rumpus Room

After 64 (yes!) consecutive months at the Hexagon Bar, First Saturday Surf Night at the Hex fired up the woodie one last time this week. Radio Rumpus Room hosted our favorite reoccurring local event for over three years, and dedicated the last hour of tonight’s show to the bands and fans who made this extraordinary run possible. Finally, high fives to Chris, Phil and Steve of host band Big Surf, who invited our participation in the first place! Thanks to one and all. After a break, we may see Surf Night reborn at another venue. If that happens you will hear about it at the Radio Rumpus Room!

This was our last show for 2009; Topkat will be in subbing for us next week. We worked in a handful of RRR-appropriate holiday tunes but decided against doing an all-Christmas show as so many other programmers were doing one. The songs’ll keep. Happy New Year, highly valued Radio Rumpus Room listeners! We’ll see you in 2010!
