Neeshcast Playlist – December 17, 2014

Last night’s show was one to go down in the books! I just got back from visiting my friend Captain Internet in Arizona, my computer is in the middle of being repaired, I still haven’t unpacked, but nothing could stop me from sharing music this week! We had a great time in the chat room and many listeners walked away with a new band whose music piqued their interest. I couldn’t be happier with the playlist!

Next week’s Neeshcast will cover alternative Christmas songs, and will help kick-start the holiday festivities at Radio Xenu! It’ll all begin at 5pm Central with Planet Cody. I’ll carry the torch from 7-11. Throughout the night and all of Christmas Day, there will be LIVE shows hosted by all of our talented DJs. Christmas Xenu style is always tons of fun! I can’t wait!

If you’re staying in New Year’s Eve, I’ll have you covered! I plan to continue what I began last week and spotlight my favorite AutoDJ tunes in anticipation for the #RXTop40 Countdown! Voting ends just before the Countdown Show starts on January 1st, so get your votes in! Might I suggest voting for Stellar Young’s “We Own Nothing?” 😀

To vote in the countdown: send a tweet to @radioxenu with the title and artist of as many Radio Xenu songs as you’d like, along with the #RXTop40 hashtag. If you’re not on twitter, just leave a post on Radio Xenu’s facebook wall.

Without further adieu, here’s the December 17, 2014 Neeshcast in a nutshell!
