playlist for five & dime show aired 31-march-2011 wmse

hello again………here is the playlist for the show today, not wasting any time.    a couple of things need mentioning first, however.   if you are in the milwaukee area, i strongly encourage you to visit the buy local bazaar happening this saturday april 2nd, from 10am to 4pm.    all proceeds from admission help support wmse (only $4!) and there will be over 60 different local businesses/people there selling their wares……..myself included.   i (along with wmse & exclusive company……perhaps others) will be selling records/music related items (many of which have been featured on the five & dime show), so please come down if that sort of thing appeals to you.   see full details for the event at


also, if you missed the show you can always check it out at the archive page, i have a link to it just to the right, and scroll down a bit……you’ll see it.    also in that same area is a link to the benefit for the recovery in japan download…….please contribute to that, cheapest 5 hours of new music you are likely to find…..unless of course you are one of those that steal your music from the internets…….and if that’s the case, well shame on you.
