Hey everybody!

Decisions, decisions this week. Do I do a full on Valentine's Day show or just stuff that can be taken in a number of ways? Well, after careful deliberation, the latter won out although the last cut is dedicated to someone special, now and forever.

So here it is. Whether you are enjoying the flush of joy that goes with new love or reflecting on betrayal or loss, there is something for everyone.

Showing My Face ... Shape Shifting Aliens (new)
Love Bomb ... Grinderman (maybe this one is sort of Valentine material)
Psycho Killer ... Talking Heads (sure hope this one isn't)
Haunts ... Spectre Hearts * (new)
Reconcile ... Austra * (Valentine material?)
Saint Nothing ... Qristina and Quinn Bachand *
Winter Tale ... Ummagma * ( pretty obvious why this one is here)
Peace and Love ... Cat Power (VDay and every day)
When We Go ... Freedom Baby * (new! From Toronto!)
More Than You Know ... Eddie Vedder (be my valentine)
Waiting For You ... The Nonsense * (new, playing at the Horseshow on Feb. 15 )
Laying In An Angel's Corpse ... Uubbuurruu * (for the lovesick goth in all of us)
Venus ... Lucky + Love (no explanation required)
Torch Song ... Todd Rundgren (dedication)

Thanks for listening. See you next week.
Be safe, be kind.
