The real losers over the solstice

Coming up is the shortest day of the year. You know who the real losers are? Vampires. They have less time to play and romp through deserted streets. Seems a shame. Today's Shockwave Radio will feature vampires, from the Shockwave live stage show where Dudley Doright gets turned into a vampire to Boogie Knights to Folk Underground.

But as long as I'm here, I might as well display a chart I've been creating while watching the fourth season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Terrible shows, with some good ones tossed in. I finally figured out how to watch the show: Buffy isn't a cut-rate teen-angst version of The X-Files, it's a 90s updating of The Munsters.
