CJ Rodriguez (Contributor)

Currently Listening To:
1. Atmosphere - Puppets
2. Pool Kids - That's Physics, Baby
3. Wu-Tag Clan, Del The Funky Homosapien, Aesop Rock - Preservation
4. Prof - Feed The Dogs
5. Call Me Karizma - Rebels

"This month's staff playlist reflects my eclectic taste in hip-hop and energetic tunes, serving as a constant source of motivation throughout the day. Kicking things off with Atmosphere's Puppets, finally catching their recent show in Pensacola was a major highlight after missing out before. That's Physics, Baby by Pool Kids injects a burst of high-octane energy into my work playlist, setting the perfect tone for productive sessions. Aesop Rock's Preservation reignites my passion for his unique style, enriching my hip-hop rotation. Prof's latest release, Feed the Dogs, quickly became a favorite with its infectious beats and clever lyrics. And let's not forget Rebels by Call Me Karizma, which brings back memories of carefree drives home from work, earning it a permanent spot in my commute playlist."

Tim Schaffer (Audio/Video Producer)

Currently Listening To:
1. This Saturday - Lunch Lady
2. Capstan - Misery Scene
3. City and Colour - Sometimes (I Wish)
4. Say Anything - Woe
5. Dead Devils - Too Old

"First I must start this list with my new favorite track from This Saturday mainly due to its pure punk rock purity of awesomeness that just warms my little punk rock MXPX heart. PS: I had a fantastic time interviewing them which you can check out on our YouTube channel. Go watch it! Next up another Florida-based band I’ve submitted once before but I’m too obsessed so they deserve another submission, especially since it’s both freshly released and somehow has me already humming throughout the day. Next two tracks from City and Colour and Say Anything are just pure nostalgic bliss I must continue to shove in people's faces. Lastly I’ve been a big fan of The Casualties for many moons so the fact that we have a local, equality kick-ass, punk group in our very own circle here with Scene Pensacola, means I must try to get others to check out my favorite Dead Devils track."

Richard NaVarre (Man About Town)

Currently Listening To:
1. Jason Aldean - Johnny Cash
2. Eric Church - Heart On Fire
3. Jeff Beck - Going Down
4. Love And Theft - Runaway
5. Doobie Brothers - Listen To The Music

"Well folks this month I'm basically listening and learning a new set list, that's right...back in another band! These are straight from RELENTLESS very own set list. I'm preparing for our debut, so I'm cramming. Lots more, not too well played numbers on the list. A mix of modern country, Rock, blues and others. Come see us!"
