Tonight’s playlist features One Hit Wonders! This was inspired by my boy Eric, “OffTheWagonsDayGuy” on Instagram, please feel free to give him a follow.

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.

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!”

This week’s show prominently featured new music from Tyler Glenn (of Neon Trees), I saw Tyler at Mercury Lounge on Tuesday night and I feel it is very important to share his upcoming album (Excommunication) with the world. I’ve been a fan of Tyler Glenn for over 6 years and I am incredibly proud of him.

While compiling the songs to share with you, I figured I’d throw in some of my other faves as well. We discussed “Let’s Spend the Night Together” by Ms. Pamela Des Barres, which led to a lengthy discussion about groupies and rock and roll.
