radio boise playlist for week of 05/21/07

German pop-rap & middle-eastern hip hop. Spooky C&W & classic snotty punk. Heavy Sabbath-esque bass fuzz, surf instrumentals and sixties girl groups. Suds-fueled frathouse R&B and unlikely foreign cover tunes. Music ripped off by Led Zep, and the folks who make fun of them. Psychedelia homage and songs about sneezing.

Welcome to my world, and thanks for listening.

If you're curious about some of these selections, please drop me a line by clicking the 'Email me' link.

Your questions and suggestions are appreciated. Thanks again!

radio boise playlist for week of 05/07/07

So much music, so little time!

Too many choices. So many genres, styles, arrangements, moods.

Eras of different sound. The hip and the passé, the next big thing and the golden oldie.

Classics and schlock.

Thank heavens there are too many choices. Bring it on, I say.

Too much is better than not enough.
