Playlist 9-2-16

RadioCPR2A most eclectic pre-holiday set tonight started with songs of work from all corners of popular music, from George Jones and Tennessee Ernie Ford to The Vogues, The Kinks, The Clash, James Brown to Charles Bradley.

It ended with Springsteen — fitting since he played a set longer than this show last night at Nationals Stadium. After “Factory,” then, some of the show highlights.

Then it was a spotlight on shows coming this week — Television at the 9:30 Club Tuesday and Kraftwerk at the Strathmore Saturday.

Here’s what I played on the radio tonight
