Working hard to find new music in 2014

Have a Happy New Year Everyone!

Due to the holiday today/tonight there will be no YTAA today. We will be back next year. Yeah, we know it was a lame joke. But we think that will not be the first lame joke today. We will be back Tuesday, January 7th with an all new show!  You can see that we are burning the midnight oil to get ready for the show in the new year… Alright, sorry about that joke/visual metaphor too.  Oh, and we have to go see Wussy tonight!  Remember to always support your local music scene!  See you all next Tuesday on WUDR.
