DJ Mike apologizes for getting this show to you late, but it’s probably worth the wait.
Ok, I’m gonna cut right to the chase. Wait–the is the second week in a row where I’ve cut to the chase. What exactly IS this “chase” that everybody keeps cutting to? Is it a good thing or a bad thing? Apparently, it’s pretty popular. So popular, that I’ve cut to it twice now, and I don’t even know what I’m doing.

Here’s what’s going on. I’m a little bit late in getting you the playlist this week. So I don’t have time for funny stuff–I’ve got to get you right to the audio, so you can hear what all the fuss is about. Just know that we mixed a whole bunch of great music together in the course of about 3 hours or so.

I especially liked the following: playing birthday girl Lisa Said, and then immediately transitioning into early Who, Sacramento cowpunk rocker JonEmery, and then a naughty Van Halen song. A bit down the road, we transitioned from the smart pop of The Corner Laughers to the equisite soul of Al Green, then to Lindy LaFontaine for some magnificent vocals, followed by some smart L.A. country music from Skip Heller. There are several other startling segues in this episode, too numerous to mention. Plus–there might be some ones that I thought were startling that might be normal for you, and vice versa.

So let’s just move right to the audio portion of this blog. Click below, have a listen, and have a great night!
