The Playlist for the Final Show that never happened….

On June 21st when it was announced RXP had been sold, we all knew right away that the format would be switched. At that time I began planning for a final anything anything show on RXP. Based on all of the info we were getting, that last show would have been July 24th or July 31st, to be safe i had planned for the final extravaganza to be on July 17th, and if the show went on after that, we would have tried to top the previous one. As the station came to an end, i have heard that a few people supposedly close to me had known that July 10th would be our last show and opted not to tell me. So be it. We had a great show on the 10th, a great playlist, some great banter, a great instudio guest and even a phone call from Joan Jett to wish us well as we signed off. The show that would have aired on the 17th would have built on that as we were pulling out all of the stops for the last show. Even though it didn’t happen, here’s the playlist, utilize theatre of the mind to enjoy the show as you read it..and maybe you’ll figure out who the special call ins are….
