The Retro Mix

Announcement Regarding The Retro Mix

After almost 13 years, I've decided to end The Retro Mix as a weekly program. However, the plan is for me to still do The Retro Mix occasionally at various times. The reasons I'm scaling back is I no longer have the time or the desire to do a weekly show. Although my show will no longer air weekly, I am still heavily involved with WKUF. For the past few years I've served as both Webmaster and Program Director. Increasingly, I find myself enjoying those duties more than hosting a weekly show. 

Even though this isn't a farewell, I still want to take a moment to thank Kettering University for allowing me to do a show and the listeners for their support of The Retro Mix since I started in January 2005. I plan on returning to the air in early January 2018 to do my annual tribute to some of the performers we lost the previous year. Until next time...
