Playlist for 2-12-10: Is it Me You're Looking For?
Made my Friday afternoon debut this week and no listener campaigns to boot me from the air – yet – success! Three hours seemed a lot longer than it ever did during the overnight shift, maybe because times flies when you’re half-asleep and drooling at 2 a.m.? I started the show with a greetings-and-salutations-type theme because I’m just that unimaginative. I interviewed Derek Dunn from the .357 String Band during the Local Lunchbox, and we talked about the just out Lightning From the North and the band’s show Friday night at Turner Hall, which I attended and much enjoyed (thanks for the ticket, Good John). I also did sets of optimistic and not-so-hopeful songs about love and romance for Valentine’s Day and played a long set of Terry Anderson & the Olympic Ass Kickin’ Team tunes to salute the Vancouver games starting the best way I knew how.
Download or stream the show right here (says Buzz's Garage).
