Playlist 8-26-16

RadioCPR2The first show in a month is sort of slapped together, owing somewhat to adjustments to a new laptop. But after the shortest salute to Alaska, I played the most of a friend’s mix of songs he found on his playlist that all began with “When.”

We heard some of the new Monkees album, with its impressive roster of contributors and closed out, for no particular reason, with the music of Iggy Pop — some of it covers of his songs, others Iggy himself.

Things might be in better shape by next week.

Here’s what I played tonight:
