radio boise playlist for week of 02/18/08

(retooled and re-cast from 10.09.06)

Never forget: At it's core, Rock and Roll is MEANT to be bad for you.

It can shake you up, frighten your parents, jar you from your routine, brighten your day, lift your spirits, expand your mind, and put a bump in your grind.

I found some rockin' beats to scatter liberally throughout this show. Found some other stuff, too, and had the usual barrel of monkeys fitting it all together.

Feel free to drop a line via the 'Email me' link o'er yonder. Say hey, ask a question, or leave a suggestion for a future show. Many thanks!

doo-wop |ˈdoō ˌwäp|

a style of pop music marked by the use of close harmony vocals using nonsense phrases, originating in the U.S. in the 1950s.

Just for the thrill, this episode was a streetcorner spotlight on classic vintage group harmony vocals, fine as wine.
