Playlist 2-10-17

RadioCPR2After concluding the Firesign Theatre album begun last week, there was a substantial salute to Smokey Robinson, who was being honored on TV for winning the Gershwin Prize from the Library of Congress.

Valentine’s Day got some attention, including a handful of songs with “Valentine” as the title from performers as diverse as David Bowie, the Replacements and Maurice Chevalier.

Played some Ventures, Velvet Underground, Woody Guthrie, a stack of Lee Hazlewood and Priests. Here’s what I played on the radio tonight:
