[From 7-10 p.m. Tuesday]
Three hosts in one show. Hour 1 was me with the roundup of local events and then a lot of music. First, a couple of tunes from Diva Jazz Orchestra, which performs Saturday night at Binghamton U.'s Anderson Center: “80 Chestnut Street” (jazz drummer Slam Stewart’s old address in Binghamton) and “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead.”

From there, it was pretty twangy.
“Ain’t Got Nobody to Grind My Coffee” – Ursula George (NEW)
“Dead Man’s Sand” – Si Kahn (NEW)
“Lil Liza Jane” – Thomas Snow (NEW)
“Step Right Up” – Roy Book Binder (NEW)
“Crocodile Man” – Chris Smither
“All Time Favorite” – Chris Trapper
“Company’s Coming” – My Sweet Patootie (NEW)
“Very Happy Now” – the Grand Slambovians
“Portrait” – Josephine Oniyama

For hour 2, Brian McKinley of Mick’s Tape Show continued the twang and also threw in some chicks who sing like dudes (and vice versa).
“Driving Nails in My Coffin” – Coal Town Rounders
“To Kill Ya” – Driftwood
“Tennessee Waltz” – Coal Town Rounders
“Love Is” – Driftwood
“Hello Stranger” – Barbara Lewis

“Don’t Leave Me This Way” – Communards
“Still in Hollywood” – Concrete Blonde

And hour 3 was apprentice Jake Flynn sharing music and sports talk.

“Radioactive” – Imagine Dragons
“Snow (Hey Oh)” – Red Hot Chili Peppers
