If you missed the August 19 broadcast you can find the archive mp3 here. The songs played are listed below. As always, we greatly appreciate your interest in this show--thank you for listening!
Remember to check out the New England Shake-Up, which takes place at the end of September. If you're going I will see you there! I'll be DJing, hearing lots of great music, and catching up with friends. Hope to see you!
