Playlist for 12/16/09: 10 Wheels for Santa

Looking back at my playlist, I suppose I was in a very garagey frame of mind this week, from the bands used in the opening Christmas-themed set to the nutty mofos who ended the show. I don’t know – I imagine bleary-eyed insomniacs at 2:45 on a workweek morning, turning on WMSE and hearing “10 Wheels for Jesus” and then making life-changing vocational choices. And that makes me happy. New music from Bob Log III, a selection from the highly recommended two disc-set that accompanies the new Oxford American music issue and a Zero $ Quartet salute to the mighty Tom Russell.

Anyone wondering what to get Zero Hour for Chrismas? Look no further.
