Hey everybody!

The deep freeze is going to be over, at least for a bit, before this show airs, so it's time to think of warmer and bouncier times ahead, right? Well, don't know about you, but dancing around with the dog and changing out of snow gear is a cause to celebrate. And who better to do it with than the Beach Boys?
Well, you get my (non-snow) drift...

Hey everybody,

Kind of a kooky list today. Mebbe it's the extreme cold kicking in, or just a lack of sun, or drinking my own coffee for days on end. Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Hope you enjoy it, I know I have been laughing the entire time it was going together.

Lust for Love (Images in Vogue cover) ...Vaglab
Chain My Name ... Polica
(It Could Be )  Love ...Camouflage Nights 
Tango Shoes ... Bif Naked
Walking In The Woods ... The Pursuit of Happiness
You Can Make It If you Try ... Mason Jar Music et al
Lipstick On Her Cigar ... Chris King Robinson
Extreme to Me ... Kris Demeanor
Wicked and Weird ... Buck 65 (yup, I know, played it before, but really great!)
Mathematics ... Les Jupes (the Skirts)
The Laws Have Changed ... The New Pornographers
Holding Down the Laughter ... Bad Books
Nowhere With You ... Joel Plaskett
G.B.A. ... Xavier Rudd
Great Spangle Fritillary... Cocteau Twins (an original this time, but may not get here :(  )

The start to a new year is always interesting. Jumping into the unknown with a foot still in the past.

As always, thanks for listening!
