Final Edition of Better Git It In Your Soul This Week.

After about 500 broadcasts over the last few years, the "Better Git It In Your Soul" radio program will air its last edition, this Tuesday 16 May 2006, from 6-8PM, east coast time, on WMUC. The show will focus on "The Best of 2006, So Far." The Harvman wishes to thank all WMUC DJs, listeners, and staff over the years that have contributed to the great time I've had serving up soulful, eclectic, time-spanning, genre-leaping musical journeys on a weekly basis. As Buddy Holly used to say, "Rave on!"

Editorial Comment By Colm: Rock on, Harvman. You'll be missed.
