Saturday December 13, 2008: 8 More Sing Out Fall 2008, Some Grammy Nominations and some Holiday Thoughts

Check for lists of playlists.  We are Hydro-Powered Public Radio, run mostly by volunteers and funded by members. We have two week archives at . See our site and listen to our stream online at WWW.WJFFRADIO.ORG
