A Good Idea For Good People

Occasionally you (the listener) will call in a request for a song for Promdate and I during our show, and while most of the time we love playing requests and will do so readily, sometimes we either wont have the song you want to hear in the station, or we simply just wont have enough time left in the show to play requests. So if you have anything you'd like to hear on the show go ahead and post it below so there will be a better chance of it getting played during the show.

Request Away,
Andy von Awesome

He's a great addition to the Awesome Prom show and he is going to be around more and more.... hell he may even get a proper DJ name one of these days.

And make sure to tune in next week for the premier episode of "Awesome Prom! The tale of the most awesome prom ever." Our brand new radio dramady that we hope will become a weekly installment on the show.

Smooth Sailing
