Episode #226

First up, some stellar new music from a lady who, after just one listen, was guaranteed to be on my top 10 list for this year. Then, a look at one of those songwriters who I’ve heard of plenty, but never actually heard.

For the last hour, some pleasures that you don’t have to feel guilty about. I went to see Crowded House in concert, and for a brief while, I thought maybe I should feel guilty about that. HA! The audience was a who’s who of music in this town, and I knew right then that not all 80s pop music is bad. So, for an hour or so, we heard some pop music (and interesting covers of pop music) that you don’t have to feel guilty about liking.
