Alas... the very last show of the SMACK IT CINCINNATI summer season...

What a long, strange trip it's been.

Special thanks to the wage-slaves at Active, Inc. for sponsoring today's show.

Check out this page of pictures from our last show.

We appreciate the supportive calls you've been making to 513.333.WAIF on our behalf. PLEASE KEEP IT UP!

(the listings follow this format: Artist Name / Song Name / Album Name / Album Year / C Name / Album Name / Album Year / Comments)

Vic Chestnut / End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) / ???? / ???? /

REM / End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) / Eponymous / 1988 / Drew: "I feel fine. I feel especially fine every time I hear this song from REM. What a great tune... We used to dance to it at the endless parties that were my college career. "LEONARD BERNSTEIN!""

Boston / Don't Look Back / Don't Look Back / 1978 / Drew: "Boston's encouraging song, 'Don't Look Back', causes us not to dwell on the potential loss of SMACK IT CINCINNATI, but to focus on the new day that's dawning... Can you believe that this came out in 1978?!!?"

Natalie Cole & Nat King Cole / Unforgettable / Unforgettable / 1991 / Drew: "Natalie tried to stand on her father's shoulders on this song. Even YEARS in the grave, Nat King still sang circles around his talentless daughter."

Yaz / Don't Go / Upstairs at Eric's / 1982 / Drew: "Nothing satisfys like a tall, cold glass of YAZ on a hot Ciof YAZ on a hot Cincinnati day. Allison, you may sing to me ANYTIME you want to!"

98 Degrees / The Hardest Thing / 98 Degrees & Rising / 1998 / Drew: "Bruce and I both know at least SOME of these guys. That's the only reason they were played on our show. Bruce's recent election to the presidency of the Official 98 Degrees (tm) FanBoy Club has NOTHING to do with it."

Tracy Chapman / Give Me One Reason / New Beginning / 1995 / Drew: "Tracy is awesome. A little bit of a downer sometimes, but her voice is so sweet."

Drew Vogel / Grey Monologue / 1999 / unreleased (yet!) / Drew: "A world exclusive on SMACK IT CINCINNATI!. Look for the forthcoming (right Bruce?) CD tribute to Over the Rhine, on which a version of this song will appear.

Blur / To The End / Parklife / 1998 /

Cher / Believe / Believe / 1998 / Drew: "Do you believe in life after SMACK IT CINCINNATI!? Call 513.333.WAIF and let them know how you feel."

Drew Vogel &smack">Drew Vogel & Bruce Lachey / SMACK IT CINCINNATI / 2000 / unreleased (yet!) / Drew: "Yes, we've quit our day jobs and will be recording music full time from now on. If you love this great country as much as Bruce and I do, you'll buy our CD of music for violin and accordian when it becomes available."

Artists for Africa / We Are The World / We Are The World / 1985 / Drew: "1985? Sheesh. This song CERTAINLY didn't age well. But everyone loves that Cyndi Lauper was on it."

Sarah Brightman featuring Andrea Bocelli / Time To Say Goodbye (Con Te Partiro) / Time to Say Goodbye / 1997 / Drew: "I cannot believe that it is time to say goodbye to SMACK IT CINCINNATI! for this summer."

and so it goes...
