playlist for five & dime show 9-december-2010 wmse 91.7

this, to me, was a great show…….everything just felt right from start to finish, and while i strive & hope that each show is this way, the sad truth is that they can’t all possibly achieve this stature.   i got a lot of calls during the show, so the vibe must have been mutual.     not sure what it was that made it so, but whatever………i’ll take it.
