Background music consisted of various songs by artists and bands that were played on our show throughout the semester.

2009, an epically awesome year, both in the world of alternative music and college radio. Yours truly and Jim Adair were proud to present the second annual NMTMies, honoring the best in alternative and indie rock in 2009. The planning of the show did take quiet a while, but it was totally worth it in the end. Some said it was our best show yet. We certainly got a dozen phone calls throughout the two hours. Thank you to everyone to tuned in, called us or IMed us. The show is nothing without the listeners and fans. Based on 2009 and snippets of what I've heard already, I expect 2010 to be just as awesome as 2009 was. We hope you've enjoyed the semester and get ready for our epic return in late January. Updates and our "Best Of" lists will all be up on the blog. Good luck on final exams, happy holidays, and we'll catch you in 2010 with more great sets. Thank you!

My Life Would Suck Without You is the worst song of the year?! Ridiculous. An amazing song! You obviously don't watch Glee.
