New Releases February 2008

It's that time again for the monthly program of new releases. John Schaefer picks through the bucketloads of CDs that have flooded his inbox to find new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's program. Fact: a favorite game in the office is "Don't Tip the Waiter" making use of the stacks of CDs waiting for airplay on John's desk. However, after the visit from a Montreal-based documentarian Josh Freed, who filmed John's desk as part of "My Messy Life," the gaming has been replaced by cursing.
