Call us old fashioned, but we're suckers for a good playlist. So, when we were thinking of our V-Day tunes, we had to turn to some of our favorite DJs in town. No, not those kids on their MacBooks in the club—we're talking old-school radio guys. And perhaps no local radio station is as near and dear to us as WVUM.
