radio boise playlist for week of 01/21/08

Some of the usual triggers moved me to indulge in the usual diversions towards rootsy blues and electric southern soul and swamp funk, by way of Americana and other especially rockin' stuff and junk.

If you are so moved, feel free to click on the 'Email me' link and send me your questions, comments, suggestions...

...Many thanks!

radio boise playlist for week of 01/07/08

Another in the ongoing series of eclectic playlist experimentation.

How wide can one cast the net?

How many bases can be hit and still have a set of music maintain some kind of flow?

I'm sure I don't know, though I'd guess different people would have different opinions.

Your opinions, questions, suggestions are all welcome.
