play list for five & dime show aired 27-oct-2011 wmse

this was an interesting show…….i was having a difficult time picking items out to play the night before, so i turned away from records & just randomly pulled certain ones out from the stacks….made it easier to choose things, but obviously more difficult when it came time to play them.    i did start with a number of selections that i knew i wanted to play…..but i think on a future installment i will choose the entire play list in this fashion.    makes for an interesting show, and forces me to play things i wouldn’t normally play.



my friend tom wanderer & i (he also has a show on wmse, every thursday at 3pm, ‘the tom wanderer radio experience’) have discussed future plans to take this one step further…..he will draw from my collection, while i from his.   we will then host each others shows……i look forward to this, and i hope you do as well.      i have many, many themed shows in the works for future episodes of the five & dime show, most of which still need more material to complete the three hour time slot.



anyway, here’s the play list from the this weeks show, hope you enjoyed it.
