Today marked our 3-Year Anniversary of doing the show. We hadn't planned anything special in advance, though strangely enough we both arrived at the studio armed with singles that we hadn't listened to in years. In Carl's case it was a rather large box of CD singles he has amassed, and I had a small stack of 7 inch singles that have been tucked away. We mixed in some newer stuff this week, but next week we'll plunge full-on into these "forgotten treasures."

The Fall's cover of "I Can Hear The Grass Grow" was the first song played on our show three years back.
