Hour 2
(I spent some time recently wandering around the Lower East Side of Manhattan, an area where I spent a LOT of time as a college student. As I walked around, I listened to Patti Smith's elegant, yet tortured "Horses" album over and over. I started with a couple of her songs in building this hour, and then the memories flooded my brain... along with the rest of the hour. I love this hour because it reminds me of a time in my life when I was more brave and daring... and even reckless. I need more of that in my current life. Do you?)

Hour 3
(This hour started with my desire to play the new David Byrne/Fatboy Slim collaboration. From there, I started tapping into that songs dreamy aspects, as well as it's R&B texture. The rest of the hour came easily. I had particular fun rediscovering Ruthie Foster's "Heal Yourself." What a brilliant song)

  1. Hey, you missed listing Alec R. Costandinos - Romeo & Juliet right after Donna Summer and before Salsoul Orchestra! Loved today's show... completely awesome. I'm actually listening to it buffered on my Sirius radio and the Salsoul Orchestra JUST started. :D
