Ruby Slippers January 22 7-8 pm
First of all, thanks for dropping by. After last week's rage against the universe, I think the playlist this time is more uplifting. Loads of new stuff, upbeat, danceable. And I even have a book to recommend to you.
If you are a fan of the history of new music, David Cavanagh's "Good Night and Good Riddance: How 35 Years of John Peel Helped to Shape Modern Life" is for you. A committment at over 600 pages, it nonetheless is extremely hard to put down. Peel remains an inspiration to DJs everywhere and remained relevant throughout his long career. As I have been reading it, I have felt compelled to jot down band after band with an eye to following up on them in the months ahead.
In the meantime, here's the list for this week. Hope you enjoy it.
