WMUC’s Broken Hearts Club: A Valentine’s Day Special

Dear Cupid, all respect to you, your craft, and your round-the-year work, but please if we have to play “Nobody” by Mitski on repeat and view our latest heartbreak as if it’s the season finale to the worst teen drama ever to metaphorically find closure... we will LOSE it.

Anyways, since you ‘love love’ or whatever, here’s a couple songs and stories from moments where we could’ve used a lil more (but, we know, we know.. we’ll take that up with HR). We hope you enjoy (even though God knows we didn’t). Love, WMUC
