Here it is. My final show on 93.1 FM in Chicago. It's been an amzing 13+ years at XRT, but all good things must come to an end, right? I can't think of a better farewell show than being able to play two hours of awesomeness at my discretion. Loads of records make their debut this week ahead of Ryan Arnold's debut next week as he takes The Big Beat through 2020 and beyond. Bobby Skafish, Johnny Mars, Marty Lennartz, Jason Thomas, Ryan Arnold.... Not a bad crew to have keeping an eye on the latest and greatest over the years. Thank you for all of your kind words these past couple of weeks as my time at XRT has been winding down. The Big Beat is in excellent hands going forward, so show Ryan some love...
