The Retro Mix Playlist For 8/21/09

On this week's show, I was joined in the studio by my niece Pjazzy. She also had a hand in selecting some of the artists featured (such as Heart, the ones included in the "Common Thread"segment, Bonnie Raitt, and Teena Marie) and we discussed why she chose them. Although she had never been on the radio before, she did an excellent job. We had a ball co-hosting and the two hours flew by even faster than normal. I'm looking forward to the next time Pjazzy comes to town so that she can sit in with me again on my show.
