Final WZBC Countdown at River Gods on Thursday, January 8th

After many years (we're not even sure anymore how many!) WZBC is going to stop presenting monthly countdowns at River Gods. The final countdown will be on Thursday, January 8th.

The final countdown will run from 10-11 p.m. as usual, but it will feature a WZBC "Best of 2008" rather than our favorites from just the previous month.

WZBC DJ's Raviolli and John Straub will be spinning before and after the countdown. They will be featuring WZBC favorites from years-gone-by, personal favorites from 2008, and whatever else strikes their fancies.

It would be great to see as many ZBC fans as possible to send the series off in style!
