Weekdays

(aired 3/26/10)

Days of the Week, Part 1: Monday – Thursday

When I originally started brainstorming for this topic, I thought I’d include all seven days of the week in one show. Then I realized that there are actually more songs about weekends than weekdays. So, thanks to all the great ideas from you listeners, there will be two episodes for this theme. Today we featured Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Tune in next week to hear songs about Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

One Response to “Weekdays”

  • Stephan Krueger Says:

    Pardon me for sending this note so late. I don’t think it will get to you before the studio production deadline. However, I just discovered this song from 1999 by David Bowie called
    Thursday’s Child
    . About cut of 2’25” gets you through the first two stanzas and the chorus. In this live performance, you can fade in at 1:12 and fade out after 3:31. The song was on the album ‘hours…’ and the title has a connection to a one-time autobiography of Eartha Kitt, called “Thursday’s Child.”

    Just a bit of trivia for you, and no need to play the song if your playlist is already full to the brim 🙂 I’m just keeping to the theme of the day!
