Playlist: Episode #629 Sunday, February 14, 2016

It’s Valentine’s Day and love is in the air. We do like to do things a little differently around here though, so we explored some other non-traditional ways of expressing your affections. We also piled up a pretty good stack of new releases and relived some of the magic of Del Barber’s Festival du Voyageur set. Once again we paid a brief tribute to the late, great Willie P Bennett on the eve of Blue Valentine’s Day.
