  • This site was originally constructed to host my old WVUD playlists.
  • The WRCT versions of Whiskey Before Breakfast playlists are linked from the schedule at the WRCT site.
  • Since WVUD started using Spinitron, my recent WVUD playlists are at this Spinitron page.
    • Note: The WVUD version of the Whiskey Before Breakfast playlists are edited for accuracy. That is, the WRCT version may have some errors corrected in the WVUD versions.
