Playlist: January 2, 2019 – The Epic Mudge Marathon

Over the holidays, most sensible UMFM hosts stay home or pre-record their shows, but I’ve never been accused of being sensible so I not only come in to do my show but usually stretch it out a little longer as well. In the past, I’ve done 5 or 6 hours, but this year I noticed something unusual: a day where nobody had signed up to come in or pre-record. That got the wheels turning and a ridiculous plan was in motion. What if I came in and did an ENTIRE day? We’re allowed to broadcast live from 11 am to 11 pm, so I asked if there was a chance that I could take it on, and they went for it. Enter: The Epic Mudge Marathon, where I got to play all kinds of stuff that I don’t normally play, including some forgotten gems and a whole pile of weird stuff that I couldn’t get away with otherwise.
