Sit and Spin
Hello and welcome!This is Katie Pleva inviting you to take a ride on the musical Sit and Spin each Wednesday from 11 AM to 2 PM Eastern.
How did the show become Sit and Spin?
As a child one of my all time favorite toys was the Sit&Spin. I could spend hours on that fun thing with a walkman practicly atached to my head. :)
Now that I have grown up I still love to sit and spin so to speak.
That's right I sit here and spin a wide variety of music.
Along with spinning a wide varioty of tunes, a few more fun features have been woven into the show.
If you wish to contribute any ideas that you feel can be utilized in these features you are more than welcome to reach me with the contact info that is further down the page.
It has often been said that one of the most important things a person can do is "learn something new every day."
With the Knowledge Nuggit, I hope to aid in that very process.
You may be presented with a random tip or trick that can make life easier. It is also possable that I may ask a trivia question that, in the grand scheme of things may appear to be "useless." True, it may not help you "save the world," but it may very well serve as an interesting ice braker, or may even win you a Pie in a rough and tough game of Trivial Pursuit.
Stop that Spinning and Pay Attention Please?
Sometimes the lyrics of a song prove themselves to be attention grabbing.
They can make a person just stop whatever he/she is doing and leave a lasting impression.
In this segment I hope to play songs that do exactly this.
The Wind Down
At the end of the day, or in this case the show, it's nice and sometimes even necessary to just wind down or to reflect on a multitude of things, people, and events.
It is my hope that the songs used in this feature aid in that process.
Again, I wish to thank Brian for his consent.
The "And Finally..." segment that has long been a part of his Music Machine was a source of amazing insparation for me as I build my own show.
Getting in touch
A big reason this show is so much fun for me is because of the thrill of interacting with you(the listener) and playing your requests.
You can do so in the folowing ways.

I look forward to getting to know you as we sit and spin the afternoon right on by us.
