WDCB (90.9 FM) Public Radio from the College of Dupage broadcasting to the Chicago radio market and streaming on the web at On August 20, 2002, Greg Freerksen, host of WDCB radio show called "Blues Edition" responded to the news that Stickshift Annie and the Overdrive were breaking up with the following message on Blues L newsgroup:

"I hope everybody in this group goes on to have a great and fulfilling musical future. One of the most interesting discs to come into the station this year was Stickshift Annie and the Overdrive's disc "Out of Her Mind." This group is not traditional blues, but has its own special voice which shows blues influence. Still I played four selections on my show which tends toward traditional blues. The lyrics of the tunes involved innovative themes with jazz inflected musical figures. An extremely enjoyable band to listen to. I wish everyone well as you go your separate ways."
