Essentials The Playlist

Don’t let the Essentials theme throw you off. By Essentials, this is deeper than just mere songs or artists. However, when I describe what our show does with music, the styles of songwriting both lyrically and musically are well reflected here. This playlist dives into the essential elements of who were are as a program and who I am as a host. I hope you enjoy this Essentials collection of indie music.
