play list for five & dime show aired 29-march-2012 wmse

this show was a lot of fun to make.    i hope it was fun to listen to.     if you missed it, i would urge you to check it out, especially if you are like me & love the song ‘brazil’.    today’s installment of the five & dime was themed affair, i called it ‘every other brazil’.   which is to say that every other song i played was a version of the ary barroso song ‘brazil’…..and the other tracks were either from brazilian artists, or brazilian in nature.    it’s been a long time favorite of mine……probably goes back to when i first started buying records at the tender age of 15…….not sure what it is about the song, but something about it really grabs me.    it’s frantic pace i’m sure has something to do with it…..this song really swings when placed in able hands.     the terry gilliam movie i’m sure helped my obsession along as well……i really enjoy that movie.



anyway, based solely on the amount of phone calls i got during this show was live leads me to believe that people really enjoyed it, and for that i’m glad.    i was afraid that people may find it difficult to keep hearing ‘the same song’ over & over again…….and i suppose, if that happened, no one was so upset by it that they called me up to yell at me (or question me)…..they probably just turned it off.   to those who were compelled to leave….i’m sorry.    i’ll return to ‘normal’ programming in two weeks……whatever the hell that is for the five & dime show.
