Gold Lion-The Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Girl in a Tree-Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti

Philip Glass. Period.
Then, there’s this fellow who hangs around the station while I’m on air and tries to learn things. I usually call him apprentice, or Chris because that is his name.
This is what he played:
This was my “Psych Myself Up For Falcon Ridge” set. It may have worked.
“Never Fit” – Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams
“Lord of the Buffalo” – Tracy Grammer
“He Thinks He’ll Keep Her” – Mary Chapin Carpenter
“Shine” – Brother Sun
“Sideshow” – Mary Gauthier
“The Lockkeeper” – John Gorka
“Cowboy Singer” – Lucy Kaplansky
“Walk Katie Home” – Seth Glier
“Shake Your Moneymaker” – Professor Louie & the Crowmatix
“Runaway Train” – Eliza Gilkyson
“It’s Goodbye and So Long to You” – Red Molly
Hopefully, we’ve met your listening needs. With every week, we improve and our set lists get more adventurous.
Keep it lit.
