Listener Favorites,
Part IV

(aired 11/12/10)

What is your latest favorite song? Earlier this year I started a new series, dedicating several shows specifically to listeners’ fave songs. There were three shows: Listener Favorites I on May 7th, Listener Faves II on May 21st, and Listener Faves III on July 9th. Each one highlighted 5 particular people with 2 songs each – with their all-time favorite songs and their latest picks. Those shows also had the perk of audio recordings of the listeners explaining why they liked those songs.

This week I continued the tradition with a fourth show, but with some different twists. I focused specifically on latest faves, asking for only one song that you’ve been appreciating recently. Sixteen folks gave their song choices that I got to play, and many also wrote to me with really interesting explanations about why they chose them – which I shared on the air.

Trevor Thomas was a special guest for this show, co-hosting the last 90 minutes with me. He is a fellow producer at KSKQ, hosting The Alternative Show every Tuesday. (See pic above: he and I happened to both choose royal costumes for a past Halloween – the “King” and a queen!) Today we ended up having a lot of fun together, focusing on our own song selections during the last segment of the show.

What’s your latest favorite song and why do you like it? Let me know, and I might do another installment sometime in the future. Here’s the lineup of what we heard for today’s 2-hour show:
