Playlist for 12-27-12

Hey folks!

Thanks to everyone who tuned in last night for my final show of 2012. And double-thanks to everyone who came out to the Moon Pearl show at Detroit Bar last night. And triple-thanks to everyone who saw me drop my mic on the ground, and then just lay down to play into it and didn't laugh at me. You da bes.

Playlist for 12-20-12 (Christmas edition!)

You guys!

Thanks to everyone who helped make my Christmas show one of my most-listened to radio shows in a real long time. I don't wanna get sappy, but I've been feeling down and it really meant a lot to me for everyone who tuned in/requested things/called in. Definitely a rad Christmas present for a lonely little college DJ boy. If you missed it, here is the playlist. Recreate it at home and play it endlessly while you sit around drinking egg nog. Don't forget the totally awful smooth jazz Christmas music I played during back-announcing breaks.

Playlist for 12-13-12

Hey, duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude (like the TV show?),

How's your friday going? Well? Terrific! I just got back from my first massage ever. The vice chancellor at the University I work at paid for everyone at my work to get 15 minute massages. It was pretty solid. I feel a tad looser now. And I'm an uptight dude. Which is why I started the show last night with a ton of calm, droney music. That massage was well-scheduled, indeed. I found a place in Westminster that has $20/hr massages. Let's go!

We can listen to songs like these on the way:
