radio boise playlist for week of 9/25/06

At first I felt a bit puzzled by the very definite mood that began to dominate the selections forming this show. Now I'll chalk it up to the changing season, the shift in the air. The quiet buzz behind a blissful drowse. Angled shafts of sepiatone afternoon sunlight poking through dark wooden shutters to catch sparkling dust motes drifting through a cozy peaceful room.
- - And stuff like that.

Though often I'm not certain where inspiration, choices, and connections originate, one look at this week's playlist and I'm certain I owe a big shout out and an enormous hug to my old pal Snappy The Alligator.

As ever, if you've any questions about the music or the method of this madness, some input to offer for an upcoming show, or a yen to say hello, please plant your cursor onto that 'email me' link waiting somewhere to the right of this sentence.

Thanks for your time!

radio boise playlist for week of 9/18/06

"...EEEW! What are you DOING? Why does it have to sound like that? Your stuff is like, all OVER the place.
Can't you just play normal music - - ? Stick to one kind of thing I can recognize and just play that over and over? HELLO? Can't you just play the same safe music that I hear everywhere else? Some of these songs are kind of okay I guess, but a bunch them are way old or something. Like, by people who aren't even alive anymore. And not even American. That's weird. Why bother?

- - At this point I wouldn't know how, even if I were interested. I'm not trying to cop a cool, outsider-rebel attitude by saying that, I'm just here hoping to entertain and enlighten you as I entertain myself. Hope you've been finding something to enjoy in the music I program.

And remember:

radio boise playlist for week of 9/04/06

This was a fun show to assemble. Almost all of the music came from a brick of CDs trundled home in a carry-on bag from a whirlwind out-of-town weekend. Big thanks for all the fodder to Shelley and Shelley's Dad and 2 locations of the single-celled place of evil.

Plant yer cursor squarely into the sidebar on the right and kiss that 'email me' link for me. Ask that itchy question about the music, deposit a suggestion for something you'd like to hear in an upcoming show, or just give me a quick noncommittal head nod and say 'hey'.

The pleasure is mine to share.
