Themeless #8

(aired 12/16/11)

One-Eyed Doll

Here’s a compilation of songs I enjoyed sharing on this Maya’s Mix show. There is no theme. Just good music.

Note: During this show I had the pleasure of a guest appearance by Joe Hudgins (“The Real Joe”). He shared a public service announcement at one of the breaks, and we enjoyed brief dialogue on the air together. That surprise visit has special value to me now, since Joe unfortunately passed away in the beginning of January. This show is dedicated to Joe, as his voice reflects his delightful humor and support of our station.

  2. Once Upon A Time – Smashing Pumpkins
  3. No One Does It Like You – Department of Eagles
  4. Mr. Ghost Goes to Town – The 5 Jones Boys

  14. Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots – The Flaming Lips [suggested by Ben]
  15. Dumb – Nirvana
