White

(aired 12/17/10)

Alabaster, ivory, blanched, milky, snowy, pearly, pallid, vanilla. Or maybe just achlorophyllous. These are all other ways of expressing today’s theme: white.

We haven’t had any big snowstorms yet here in Ashland, Oregon, but I have a feeling the flakes will be falling sometime soon. One of these days I’ll look out the window and see a blanket of whiteness covering everything. For now we get to hear a great lineup of songs celebrating the hue.

Note the other colors featured in past shows: black (October ’10), blue (August ’10), green (March ’10), red (December ’09) and gold/silver (August ’09).

Next week I’ll be out of town, so KSKQ will be replaying my Holiday show from last December. It’ll get you in the spirit. Happy holidays!
