Afternoon Classics - Wednesday Dec. 31, 2008

Greetings on this the last day of 2008. While this is the first posting for Afternoon Classics it is only the beginning! I will be posting a playlist for each show along with the occasional comments when something comes to my attention. Like today: it is well known that people make New Year's Resolutions on New Year's Eve that they will ultimately break before the end of January. Well to assist in that process I am providing 60+ minutes to ponder by, courtesy of Michael Gandolfi, check the playlist.
