radio boise playlist for week of 03/24/08

(Re-cut and re-cast from 03/19/07)

Reach for some music and see where it takes you.

Spring is here officially, but the feeling that it's arrived hasn't quite settled in. The weather is nicer and things are just starting to get green, and so the mood has moments of bouncy celebratory goofiness.

But it seems that Winter and it's heavy coat of blues can be hard to shake off all in one go, so the result seems to be a vague, bipolar essence of... what- -

- - Spirited melancholia, perhaps? A hesitant rebirth?

- - Ahh, skip it. Whatever it was, as usual some of it rubbed off onto the musical selections for this show. Hope you enjoyed.

My directive remains the same:
Any questions or comments or suggestions, please feel no hesitation to click that 'Email me' link over to the right, and thanks again for your time and indulgence...
