(aired 8/19/11)


Last week my show featured songs that all had the word “love” in the title – all cover versions. Today is the same basic playlist, in the same order, but this time I’m playing the originals of all those songs. We’re doing a mirror reflection, now going to the root sources. I also had time near the end for a handful of songs I didn’t play last week.
