THE DEAN'S LIST
Rick Hudson
In the 1980's and early 90's there existed a musical genre called 'college rock' that was made up all the odd, edgy, weird and wonderful stuff that was too good for corporate stations.  This music found a home on college stations (usually late at night).  This show is a love letter to late night college DJ's and the weird music that seemed to exist only on those low frequency airwaves.  Hosted by Dr. Richard Hudson, the Dean of Student's at nearby Spalding University.  Call your parents and tell them to send more money....you've made it onto 'The Dean's List' !
