Hello Night Sleepers,
Since you all so rudely keep sleeping right through my radio show, I’ll give you an update of the shenanigans I’ve been up to.
Yesterday I set a trap to try to catch Lin Brehmer with an Ellen McIlwaine album. He outsmarted me, but I’ll try again when he least suspects it.

“Down So Low” – Ellen McIlwaine
As some of you may have noticed, the lock on the XRT vault has been opened thanks to our new Program Director, Greg Solk. I know how lucky I am to be able to pick the music I play, and things just got a whole lot crazier.
Tonight I played “The Load Out / Stay” by Jackson Browne for the first time in my 3+ years on air. That was fun.
And this gem from The Band:
“Up On Cripple Creek” – The Band
And we’re just getting started.
A few weeks ago I gave a tour of the best napping spots at the station… make sure to watch ’til the end, that’s the best napping spot.
On a more serious note, last summer we lost longtime XRT DJ Leslie Witt to Ovarian Cancer. Her family has organized a team for the Ovarian Cycle event in Bannockburn on April 23rd. The event will help raise money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance, a global organization dedicated to advancing Ovarian Cancer research while supporting women and their families. If you’d like to make a donation to team “Loving Leslie” you can do that here. General event info can be found here.
XRT is more than a radio station, it’s a community. You all proved that last September when we sold over 1,500 Teal shirts and raised over $22,500 for the OCRFA in honor of Leslie. Thanks for supporting us through thick and thin.
