radio boise playlist for week of 02/05/07 - - Are you ready for Valentine's Day??

It's easy enough to find songs about love.

It's also pretty simple to go out and find a Valentine's Day card.

A task that can prove to be just a bit trickier is trying to find that card or that song that might capture that particular facet you'd like to express of the myriad permutations of love - - IF it can even be identified...

Love is not always as simple as a card or a pop song.

It can be a complex and frightening rollercoaster ride.
A frustrating puzzle.
An elusive prize.
A necessary evil.
A lie. The truth. A joke.
A bump in the road, a reason for living.
And much more, or all of the above. Or something completely different.

Enjoy the ride, and Happy Valentine's Day to you.

Love is out there.

Thanks for your time!
