Streets (#2)

Part 2: General References

(aired 8/31/12)


I started this theme last week with Part 1, featuring songs that had specific street names in the titles. This show is Part 2, with a looser requirement of songs that simply mention some form of street in the title. Looking at the playlist, almost all titles use “road” or “street,” with a few “highways.”

It has been a lot of fun dancing through the streets with you during the last two weeks. Thank you for all the song suggestions! Enjoy…
