TEN REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD VOTE FORÃ¢â‚¬Å“THE SUNDAY MORNING HANGOVERÃ¢â‚¬Â AS THE BEST RADIO SHOW ON EUGENE WEEKLYÃ¢â‚¬â„¢S BEST OF EUGENE BALLOT 2005 1) This week the Eugene Weekly has on the back cover the official ballot for the best of Eugene readers poll. And every year some lameass radio show like the STORM AND DENNIS show, 94.5 FM wins best radio show. Rather than having some corporate happy talk loser show that plays wimpy top 40 soft rock win again this year, strike a blow for free form radio that doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t suck and vote for Ã¢â‚¬Å“The HangoverÃ¢â‚¬Â. 2) My show Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Sunday Morning HangoverÃ¢â‚¬Â has been entertaining Eugene for almost three years playing obscure and forgotten popular music from the early 1900Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s up to present day sounds. 3) In the space of Two hours on Sunday mornings on KWVA 88.1 FM I have covered musical genres such as Exotica, Lounge, International, Found Music, Stupid Songs, Bizarre ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Music, Jazz, Rock, Country, Folk, Classical, Nostalgia, and Comedy while trying to maintain a palatable mix entertaining enough to listen to even with a Hangover. 4) Past shows have featured Rare and Unreleased tracks not commercially available and unheard on other radio shows. 5) I have produced and obtained Biographic Specials about artists such as Martin Denny, Ray Charles, The Bonzo Dog Band, Brian Eno, Peggy Lee, Henry Mancini, William Shatner, The Kinks, The Beach Boys, and Pink Floyd. 6) Special segments include musical explorations of Bossa Nova, Stolen Melodies, Whistling Recordings, Song Poems, Doo Wop, Vintage 78Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s and Bird Records. 7) The Hangover is not just about music. Talk and Discussion segments have included info on the Arts, Hangover Cures, Entertainment News, Obits, Tributes, Horoscopes, Political Comment, Weird News, and Pet Parades. 8) Topical Specials have entertained and informed you about FatherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Day, MotherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Day, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Labor Day. 9) All of this is accomplished free of charge on a strictly volunteer basis with benefits to me other than sharing my love for music and thoughts about life, with NO COMMERCIALS. 10) The Tenth reason to vote The Sunday Morning Hangover Best Eugene Radio Show is to feed and stroke my massive ego, and everyone knows all radio DJÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s are egomaniacal assholes who need constant attention.
