Last Show of ’09

Goodbye 2k9, it’s been real. We had some good times and we had some bad, but it’s time for you to move over and make way for 2k10. This was Sam’s last show but don’t worry, because it’s not the end of the Cassette Deck. I shall press on and hopefully find a new co-host. So if you liked what you heard this semester stay tuned, I’ll be back after the break…

Davyan Cowboy – Boards of Canada
Staring At The Sun – TV On The Radio
Decatur, Or, A Round Of Applause For Your Stepmother – Sufjan Stevens
Fire Eye’d Boy – Broken Social Scene
Knife – Grizzly Bear
Obstacle 1 – Interpol
Making Time – The Creation
2,000 Man – The Rolling Stones
I Saw Her Standing There – The Beatles
Anecdote – Ambulance LTD
Maps – Yeah Yeah Yeahs

These Days – Nico
New Slang – The Shins

Thanks for a great semester. Come back in the new year and we’ll chat about how unrelevant 2k9 is now that it will be 2k10. (that sentence made little sense.)

Cheers for a while
