Monday’s Alpha Beats program is a special 150-minute edition, it being the end of the year and all. It’s also special because it’s the penultimate episode of our 52-week/26-show series, trolling through one announcer’s record collection — one letter at a time. The X show sure was fun, eh? Now, it’s time to get Ys to two-and-a-half hours of songs and stories, including a few words of caution (just in time for the debauchery of New Year’s Eve) from Paul “Tex” Yearout. Listen up, folks. That’s 10 a.m. Monday, on CKCU. Hey, it’s not like you’ll be engrossed in your work at that time.
