The Retro Mix Playlist For 3/20/09

Not having time to finish prepping my show before airtime is becoming a habit. What can I say, I was in dire need of a nap before I headed to the studio yesterday. Once again, the listeners bailed me out with their requests.

One thing I love about doing radio is introducing listeners to songs they may not have heard. On 2/22, I featured the Buggles' song Kid Dynamo as part of the "On the Flip Side" segment (it was the B-side to Video Killed the Radio Star). A listener who heard me play it during that show liked it so much that he called last night and asked me to play it again. You can hear it yourself by clicking here.

Candy: Thanks! "Cruel To Be Kind" is one of those tunes that always brings a smile to my face.

Janet: As you can see, I'm behind in following up on comments. I'm catching up though, lol.

I love guessing games like this. Let's see, I will say that these are the 3 songs that you adore:

1. Family Affair- Sly & the Family Stone
2. Car Wash- Rose Royce
3. Love Shack- The B 52s

So how did I do?

Janet said...

Hot Love- T. Rex
Crackerbox Palace- George Harrison
Family Affair- Sly & the Family Stone

You were right on one!

Malcolm said...

Janet: I never would have guessed those other two. I hadn't played George Harrison or T. Rex in awhile so it was long overdue.
