The Class of 2024 Herndon Playlist is LIVE

The fifth Herndon Playlist is live and I’m excited that it will precede an actual climb. No disrespect to the Supe and the Dant – they did the best they could last year – but knowing that the Plebes will actually climb the monument this year is proof that we are definitely closer to normal. Of course, the fact that no spectators will be allowed on The Yard is a reminder that we aren’t quite there yet.

But climb the Plebes will, so here’s a playlist just for them. I’m pleased to say AN Shine (the passionate talent behind “A USNA Mom’s Journal: Plebe Summer through Commissioning and Beyond! What You Need to Know” and an Etsy shop that will enchant any fan of the Academy) shared some thoughts as did my Mid-turned-Ensign.

I’ve been using Mixcloud for years to publish podcasts and here’s that version:

But I’ve been investigating other platforms and when I came across one called Anchor, well, I mean how could I pass that up?

Herndon Playlist, Class of 2026 Karl's Podcast

We did it live! Yes, we recorded this year's Herndon Playlist live on Falcon Radio from the campus of Bowling Green State University. So it's a little rough in spots but still a lot of fun. I wrote a blog post about some of the reasons why I chose the songs – read it here. Includes music by Chloe & The Silver Strings, Freight Street, Superchunk, Superchick, Relient K, World Party, Poi Dog Pondering, and Calibretto 13. #PlebesNoMore

  2. Herndon Playlist, Class of 2025
  3. USAFA Class of 2025 Summer Playlist
  4. Herndon Playlist, Class of 2024

If Anchor works as advertised, I will soon be able to offer downloadable podcasts, which will be cool. Either way, I hope you’ll listen in and join in the Herndon celebration. Bravo Zulu, Class of 2024 – enjoy. We are climbing back to normal!

You can watch the Herndon Climb live on YouTube, May 22 at 1 p.m.!
