Under & Up

(aired 7/23/10)

Following the same idea I had for my “F” show in February, this week I asked listeners for suggestions about songs starting with the letter “U.” Looking through the great medley of ideas (through Facebook), I noticed that many of the titles had references to “under,” while a bunch of others had “up” in the title. So instead of the general U theme, I narrowed it down, playing a mix of songs that take us under and then up. What a fun roller coaster ride!
