Trevor Thomas’ Picks

(aired 12/9/11)

Trevor Thomas

Trevor Thomas put together some of his favorites for this playlist, also offering his commentary on some of the choices. Trev is the host The Alternative Show, which used to air on KSKQ.

I invite others to step up and take the opportunity to create a playlist for my show. It’s a chance to get recognized and appreciated for your own unique taste in music. Just send me a list of 25-30 songs you pick, as well as explanations of why you like them (either in written form or audio voice recordings). I’ll then devote a week’s show to your own mix! Email maya@kskq.org or let me know on the Maya’s Mix Facebook group page.
