radio boise playlist for week of 8/28/06

A collection of performances cascading past crunchy guitars, blasting brass, fuzzy electronics, bewailing voices and other curious oddities - - but culminating in the whining deejay soliciting comments.

YOU can drop me a line by clicking on that 'email me' link nestled within that right hand sidebar. If you have a question about the music or wish to make a suggestion for a future show, I'd be pleased to try and accommodate. Or just say 'hello'...

radio boise playlist for week of 8/21/06

Sometimes, thankfully, a pissy mood can be hard to maintain. Songs about contention, fear, righteous indignation and pain give way to a jazzy, funky, soulful desire to shake it down to the ground.

Hey, I can't tell me what to do...
...The muse must know best, so maybe it's best for all if I get out of it's way!

Over in yonder right-handled sidlebar there lies an 'email me' link for you to click with. Follow your thoughts and posit a query about the music, or feel free to venture a request for something you'd like to hear in an upcoming show.

My pleasure is to entertain & share.
