Happy New Year Everyone,
I'm posting the playlist about ten minutes after the show--so far keeping my resolution to be better about getting these lists posted. As always, thanks for listening and for supporting community radio!
Before the list...here are links to the items I mentioned on today's show...the great blog post connecting a haircut to Bruce Springsteen, the book about former champ Floyd Patterson, and the magazine article called "Frank Sinatra has a Cold"--enjoy. Oh, and I also shared my affection for the song, The Rose--heard it the other day while putting gas in my car and am not ashamed to say I was moved. Well, maybe kinda ashamed, but...
