The 600th Special Episode Playlist


600Special-TARS That’s right, we’ve finally made it.
600 episodes of remarkable, one-of-a-kind radio. What this episode showcases is not just great music, that’s a given (if I do say so myself). Actually, one of the best things about our 12 year history and now 600th show is that we’ve been able to share the impact that great music has on each others’ lives.

So this week, it’s not just a collection of music that fits into a theme. Each of these songs comes with a story, many shared by listeners like you who told us of music that has a very special meaning in their worlds. I’ll share a few songs and stories of my own. And as an extra feature, I’ve got 2 special segments from a few producers and music connoisseurs who have produced something unique for us.

Enjoy!

Unconventional Meal Pt 5 Playlist


joni-mitchell-bw-beret-cropped Our series has been outstanding thus far, and so has the feedback. We appreciate everyone who has been writing in on how this Unconventional Meal series has impacted them, especially as we build up to our huge 600th episode in a few weeks. This week I’ll do something I’ve never done before in our 2nd hour as well as play more requests that have come in for Annie Lennox, Weezer, Temple Of The Dog and more. Enjoy!

Girls & Boys Playlist

TA-FBProfile1 Over the holidays I received some great music on vinyl that I’ll be sharing this week. Also, a few great indie artists that I’ve gotten to know over the years have new music we’ll get to sample, Kelley McRae being one. And I thought it was cool how two different bands, one with a male lead and the other with a female lead, have such similar yet different sounds that mix so perfectly together (especially in Hr2). Enjoy our mix of Girls and Boys Playlist this week.
