We all make ‘em, we almost always break ‘em. How’s your New Year’s resolution going?

You’re on the Sound Beat.

You’re listening to “I’m Not Having Any This Year” by David Street, backed by Russell Case and His Orchestra. The phrase is one that many will utter, with an eye towards cutting out the junk and getting in shape. There’s a reason gyms and fitness clubs see such a huge uptick in memberships this time of year. And they usually try to get you to sign up for that annual plan…that’s because an estimated 85 percent of said plans are abandoned…by mid-February.

May we suggest a resolution to help keep Sound Beat free to stations and listeners? No donation is too small. Go to soundbeat.org and click on the “Donate to Sound Beat'” button. And thanks!

Sound Beat is produced at the Belfer Audio Archive, Syracuse University Libraries.
