Animals (#2)

Part 2: Song Names

Animals 2

(aired 11/30/12)

This is part two of the animal theme. Last week featured selections done by musical artists and groups that all have animals in their names. Today is a follow-up, but this time all the song titles contain animal references. There were so many choices that I decided I’m saving the aquatic animals for another future show.

Scott Garriott, host of Neon Madman’s Radio (on KSKQ Tuesdays, 9pm-midnight), joined me as a spontaneous co-host for the second half of the show. It was a fun surprise sharing reflections and laughter with him about the various songs.

Thank you to everyone for the song suggestions!
