No (reason for) Depression

The hubby and I have been volunteering a lot lately at WMNF. I'm currently unemployed, so I've got plenty of time on my hands. I've always preferred to work for free rather than waste time at a boring/useless job for good money. Not that I can really afford to be unemployed for much longer, but I'll enjoy this "free" time while I've got it.

We sat in this morning for the ND Hour, the Americana/alt country show on 88.5 WMNF. (The playlist is below, and you can stream the show online for the next week.) We took noncommercial radio to new levels, I tell ya. We played lots of current folks who get very little recognition but deserve more face/ear time than the hacks that make millions. I've included some links if you want to check out these artists for yourself. There's nothing like the feeling of finding a new favorite.
