Since we lost the internet radio component earlier this year, I have focused on playing new NJ music, but I've been looking for a way to do more to showcase the past & present of New Jersey's music scene.

After several failures (some of which I mentioned in last week's newsletter), I have hit upon the first new feature will be implementing to showcase more of New Jersey's music scene.

That feature will be announced, and posted on, on Thursday, as we begin the next 16 years of!
