Ruby Slippers (eeps! It's Friday) April 13 2018 7-8 pm


Hey everybody!

Could have made a theme playlist for FRIDAY THE 13TH but, naw, really, we aren't superstitious, right? Just keep both fingers and toes crossed (not your eyes, they will stay that way) that the CD players don't kick up again this weekend. Otherwise, you are listening to me sing for an hour straight and trust me, that would be pretty brutal.

Ahem, here is the playlist.

Hey Little Darling ...Stark Naked and the Fleshtones *
Out of Sync ...The Lost Tapes
Houdini Crush ... Buke and Gase
Do Your Own Time ... AC Newman *
Given the Time ... Everfriend
Where Am I ... One Over Zero * (good question, really)
Turkish Greensleeves ... Sultans of String *
Bad Fortune Cookie ... The Skeletones Four *
Hi Ho Silver Lining ... Jeff Beck
Blue Fear ... Sleep In Heads
Bollywood ... Patrick Watson *
Becoming X ... Sneaker Pimps
Father Pray ... Pat Robitaille *
Start Today Tomorrow ... Youth Group
Up You Go Little Smoke ... Tasseomancy*

Thanks for listening.

See you next week
