radio boise playlist for week of 08/20/07

This show wandered briefly through some jazz (including a brief farewell to the legendary
Max Roach), some old R&B, and some outlaw C&W before settling into it's main theme:

Songs that S.P.E.L.L. out their T.I.T.L.E.S.

I've completely swiped this week's theme from one of my old radio D.J. pals at K.A.L.X. in Berkeley, the lovely Jesse Luscious.

Jesse recently polled other KALX DJ's to pool their vast musical knowledge for candidates for such a theme show.
(In my defense, I made a few of the contributions to that list, O.K.?)

It was fun putting it all together. Hope you E.N.J.O.Y.E.D.

Questions, comments or suggestions for future shows are all welcome!

T.H.A.N.K.S. !!

radio boise playlist for week of 08/06/07

I'm doubtful that anyone out there has more fun than me when I'm programming another show.

I get to indulge my whims, pick the music that moves me at the moment, and let it fall together in a manner that suits my tastes.

The result couldn't possibly suit everyone, but I follow my own happiness confident that the show will strike the right people the right way.

It's a great privilege, and I thank you for being involved in the process.

And as always: Any questions, comments about the music - - just click on the 'email me' link.

Thanks again, thanks!
