radio boise playlist for week of 07/23/07

It was just another meandering flight from one point to another, with no particular destination in mind.

Life is grand, life is large, and filling it with music only makes it more so, sez I.

It feels good, so do it.

(And I'm happy to help if I can)

Music may also manage to be a fitting reminder, as well, when your life decides to get in your face and mar your mood.

The music flows, the music changes, just like life.

Is there a question about the music?

A comment, suggestion?

radio boise playlist for week of 07/16/07

Hmmm. Sometimes I just get to feelin' ornery, I guess.

Fulla piss 'n' vinegar. Ready to raise a ruckus, and ready to throw some wild curve balls and see how they fly.

Loud music, difficult music, troubled music, and soft and pretty music that shouldn't quite fit in.

Beautiful Noise. What fun.

Thanks for your time! Thanks for listening! Thanks! Hello!

The notes and the songs and the moods and ideas tumble and change and flow.

You jump into that stream wherever you may and sail along for the ride as long as you do, your attention drifting from the music to your own activity and back again, as one informs the other. Maybe occasionally asking, 'How did we get from there to here?'

Hope it was a pleasant trip.
