rahim quazi green

My thanks to those who came out to Off the Record last night, and I also thank those who tried to listen to Deep Ellum Radio last night. Alas, there were technical problems galore, and the broadcast was abandoned. There will be a broadcast of the Top 40 songs in the upcoming days, but without any of the supposedly witty commentary of mine. I’ll keep you posted in regards to that.

So for those who missed all my tweets last night, here’s a complete recap of the Top 101 local songs of the year.
