I'm not sure who keeps tossing my name into that hat, but, given my small but dedicated following, I certainly have some ideas. The thing is, no matter who did it – or, for that matter, why – I'd just like to say thank you. It was a dash of good news that came along when I needed it most.

Intro: Baddd Spellah – "Radio Free Hipster Theme (feat. Beefy)"
It always feels weird to find myself talking over this.
Track 1: Wordburglar – "Fred Broca"
From RFH ep. 143, 10/26/12. I didn't do my usual year-end round-up back in 2012, but this was easily one of my favorite songs from that year.
Track 2: Andrew Allen – "Star Trek: The Next Generation"
From RFH ep. 139, 8/31/12. I ain't exactly a jazz cat, but Andrew's key-heavy Star Trek tribute instantly charmed me.
Track 3: Dethlehem – "Circle of Deth"
From RFH ep. 134, 6/15/12. Dethlehem? Them's my boys!
For those of you keeping score at home, I've won two of the four Parsecs thus far awarded in this category. Would I love a third? Sure, but – as cliché as it sounds – just being nominated, especially as the RFH project has sort of run its course, is truly an honor.
