Playlist 11-20-15

RadioCPRStarted off inspired by the “Shining the Light” concert telecast tonight with Marvin Gaye and especially “American Skin (41 Shots).” Played a few songs about the devil that I had been lugging around since Halloween, also some Willie Nile and Okkervil River, who were in town, and a lot of The Flamin’ Groovies who are coming to town Monday.

Played a little of the Bob Dylan bootleg, Jonathan Richman’s new single and the one from David Bowie, and a lot from Keith Richards’ latest studio effort. Here’s what I played on the radio tonight:
