Playlist for 9/24/10: Stay Humble or You're Sure to Stumble

I generally only seek advice from truck stops, so when I saw a sign from the highway that read, "Stay Humble or You're Sure to Stumble," I knew I had to go with the straighten-up-and-live-right theme this week. Dug into the '80s vinyl for a set and played new music from the Murdocks and the Piney Gir Country Roadshow, who battled with the Breakup Society for longest (and best) song title of the show: I'm Better Off Without A Piece Of A Shell Of A Man vs. She Doesn't Know She's Not Supposed to Like Me Yet.

Playlist for 9/17/10: Lie to Me

With the primary season over and November elections on the way, it seemed like the right moment to send a big kiss out to mendacity. New music from Wheels on Fire, No Bunny and Superchunk and a tribute to the late King Coleman.

Playlists for 9/3/10 and 9/10/10: Workin' For My Baby

Doubling up on the playlists after finally getting some time to put them together. Corri and I took a trip to Minneapolis last weekend to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary, which I honored with this week's opening theme. The trip to the Twin Cities and the candylands that are The Electric Fetus and Cheapo Discs netted me some nice used LP finds, some of which I played this week and some of which I wish I allowed to play on the air. Lots of new music this week from Norton Records and the brand new single from the Oblivians. I honored the working man and gal with my opening set last week.
