J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 3rd September 2014
[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. This week was jam packed with new releases, so there's a ton of great new stuff this week. I was also joined by two new DJ trainees as we start the fall semester here in a couple of weeks. They did a nice job, so keep an ear out for them on the station in the coming weeks.
I'm skipping Hopscotch for the first time in its existence this year - which is a bit of a bummer - but every field has a fallow year to make it better for the next. Hope everyone is having fun up in Raleigh.
