The federal government is currently shut down, but even when it's working, it sometimes takes decades before the public finds out about something. In July of this year, it was finally admitted that there is an official Area 51. So "Theme Attic," the radio show that picks themes and plays music from a variety of genres about selected subjects, will play a few songs about the government, and then examine some of the quirky music about extraterrestrial life. Join host DJ Phil Maq on Wednesday, October 2, at 10:00AM for his clever and unusual takes on music!
