Playlist 11-6-15

WOBC-FMParents weekend at any college means that campuses are overrun with well-wishing elders, who can tour facilities, relieve offspring from cafeteria food for a night at a fancier restaurant  and even attend lectures way over their head.

Kids who have their own college radio shows often bring the ‘rents to the studio to observe their broadcasting prowess; in my case, because I was missing the usual Friday Night Rock on Radio CPR 101.7 FM in Washington, I got to be guest DJ for one night only in an early evening slot at WOBC 91.5 FM, Oberlin College & Community Radio.

I couldn’t quite operate everything in the surprisingly up to date studio and the turntables were definitely off limits. I also learned, on the fly, that you can’t play more than two songs by the same artist in a row. Which meant an end to my planned Jonathan Richman retrospective.

So here’s what I played on the radio, based on things from the car and what I could find at the studio.
