The program will include tracks from all phases of the band's career (1993-2003), including an unreleased live track or two. ning nong's regular weekly program, ning nong radio, is switching to Thursday nights this semester; same time: 10PM-1AM (NCP2).

Neptune on the Z

On a date yet to be confirmed, the two representatives of Neptune (LTD) will be joining me (Nick) on my show. More than likely there will be girly giggling, noisy machines, and fun for all ages. They'll be talking about their new record, Gong Lake, which is coming out on February 19. Keep checking here to find out when I'll have an actual date and time set up for this.
