Letter V

(aired 2/14/14)
Letter V

Happy Valentine’s Day! In celebration of V-day, all the songs on this playlist have titles starting with the letter “V.”

I asked for favorite V songs on the Maya’s Mix Facebook group page, and you listeners gave me a bunch of great ideas. There are a couple sub-themes to this show: one set of songs all have “Venus” in their titles, while another set contains female names starting with the letter V.
