This week’s show is a celebration of my late sister, Melissa. Melissa would have turned 37 this coming Friday, September 8, so she gets to pick the music this week in honor of her birthday. She used to use my Spotify account (before you could do the family plan thing) and thanks to that, I have a playlist of over 200 songs that she created. Tonight I shuffled that playlist, as a way to maybe have Melissa pick the songs.

Eric was playing One Hit Wonders and it inspired tonight’s show. Good times.

Wow! Live shows are back! How exciting?! Thank goodness!
Music Roulette! (aka Stephanie didn’t come up with a playlist for tonight so we’re just doing shuffle with the playlist of songs we’ve played so far in 2017). I told you why I will truly be single forever and about the nightmare date that I went on a week ago. Men my age and older who are single/never married/no kids tend to be a little insane. I have also decided that maybe taking guys home from the bar that I frequent isn’t smart, because if I frequent it, chances are the other guy might too… Tony nominations were announced, asked how you guys feel about that vs. the Broadway Audience Awards because there’s a bit of a discrepancy. Second half of the show, 80s songs that reminded me (and the audience in the chat) of movies that they were featured in.

Side B Radio 04-26-2017

This week’s playlist is inspired by my friend, “Mr. Jones”. I made Mr. Jones a playlist because I wanted to expose him to these songs, and for him to add them to his playlist at the bar where he works. I am nervous about actually giving him this playlist because I don’t know if you make platonic friends of the opposite sex music playlists (aka mix tapes), so I figured I’d do a test run here and let me know what you think. I also told you about how I saw Sunset Blvd and this amazing new show Bandstand- that I hope wins ALL the awards! Charlene Kaye’s song, Honey, inspired a bit of a rant about how I needed to let a couple of people go. Also told you about this great book that roommate Kelly got me for my birthday: “The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck!”
