*Background music consisted of various cult classic tunes from the 1980s. They ranged from The Beastie Boys to Van Halen, from cheesy to epic, covering multiple genres.

Our second show of the semester (25th in total) came and went this past Friday, but not before we tore it up with some great alternative tune-age. I took the board and Jim took the main microphone. With our powers combined, we put on one epic edition of NMTM. Again, our show was dominated by fresh music; this week featured songs from Pearl Jam, The Temper Trap, Julian Plenti, St. Vincent, Dirty Projectors, and more. A lot of the music we played was released in the month of September, varying in years of course, but still, we thought it would a be nice way to send off the month and the summer. Get this: we've added 2 new segments!: ”The Mighty Mighty Boss-Tune” and ”Indie News”. Four segments in a two-hour program might be a little too much for any college radio show, but we're not just any ordinary duo! Sound effects and introductions for these segments are coming soon. ”Punk Trunk!” hit you hard with the likes of The Thermals, leading into Nirvana and The Dead Milkmen. Then finally, we closed up shop with The Pixies and Arcade Fire. Our phones were working once again and we thank our numerous callers. If you didn't get on the air this week, we assure you, that you will next week. Tune in next week for more new music, some more of our witty banter, and of course: another great set!

Pearl Jam - "The Fixer"
