playlist for five & dime show aired 20-jan-11

as promised, here’s the playlist for my last installment of the five & dime show, i’ll be back on 4th of febuary, and will be hosting the show for FIVE weeks in a row, as andy will be visiting his special lady friend in france for the entire month………in one way i look forward to being at the helm for that many weeks in a row, and in another way it’s rather daunting.    there may be some themed shows in the coming weeks, but it’s hard to tell at this point.      anyway, for those of you in the milwaukee area, i strongly recommend that you find your way to the cactus club on sunday the 30th of january, as cave / hush arbors / and cyborg fortress grace us with their musical stylings in the depths of winter……….can’t wait to finally see hush arbors, been wanting to get them into town for some time, and, now that keith is stateside, it should be much easier to do in the future as well…….please come check them out if you can, odds are if you are a fan of the five & dime show, you’ll be a fan of hush arbors.
