radio boise playlist for week of 12/17/07

Searching for a break in the madness leads to inspired madness of a different sort.

The groove bends but doesn't break, soothes and spurs onward.

Any questions about the music, suggestions, how-dos, please head over to the 'email me' link floating somewhere on the right-hand side of this page.

Thanks for listening!
