I promised I wasn’t going to go on a rant tonight. I almost got through the entire show too. It was worth it. But it’s all about the music, right? That’s why you tune in. You want to hear what I’m going to play, and in what order I’ll be playing it. I get it. That’s why I listen to quality radio programs, and often with a pen and paper at hand. I want to get excited about a tune I haven’t heard before so I can run on out and purchase it, and perhaps get turned on to an artist that has deftly escaped my attention until now.
Recently, a friend of mine was telling me that I should contact a commercial radio station and ask for the opportunity to be their music director for one day. Yes, the music heard on most commercial stations, most of the time, makes me want to puke. Much of what I’m perplexed about is the order of their songs. They can hand me the list of all artists/songs they want played for that day and allow me to place it in an order that actually makes sense. Don’t hold your breath for me to do this anytime soon, but I do like the idea.
If you have been enjoying the second hour live sets I’ve been doing then I believe you’re really going to enjoy what I have in store for you on this show. Check out the playlist below, and click the stream/download links above.
