My Last Show on

I've long since burned myself out talking about the demise of my former employer, the place most of you probably first became familiar with my work.

With the knowledge that its days may be numbered, I recorded the first two hours of my final, regularly scheduled show on Friday, March 12, 2010. Now, I was still on-air the following week during our SXSW broadcasts, but this represents the last show I hosted without interruptions for guests or performances. I just had a sense, you know?

So, while The Big Beat'cast takes a breather this week, I thought you'd enjoy listening to a time capsule of one of WOXY's final days. If you dig on TBB, you might like this.  The tracklisting is after the jump.

  1. Be still my heart! One of my most cherished musical possessions is a burned cd of a WOXY show that my brother made...I think from Spring 2009. This is a wonderful if bittersweet window back in time--thanks for sharing it with us. --Kristin

  2. BAM! Thanks Mike. Even though I'm still able to listen to you via the Big Beat - WOXY will always be dear to my heart.

    Also, this is very timely with the announcement today on that the website and message boards will be shutting it's doors for good in a matter of days.

  3. thanks mike. very thoughtful of you to do this. your time on WOXY gave me hope for hearing good music on the radio. glad i can still tune in to you on DIY and barb on the current. i appreciate all that you do.

  4. Thanks Dave..and DoubleA, Anonymous and everyone. Sheer coincidence that I posted this a few hours before word that the site was coming down. Had no idea. Just needed a few weeks away from the normal TBB'cast and thought this'd be a good way to bridge the gap.

  5. I have to add my thanks, too, Mike. This is an unexpected treat!
