Playlist 2-17-17

RadioCPR2Started with some Miles Davis, then some Cuban sounds from Rhythms del Mundo. Turned the clock back 50 years to the day when the Beatles were creating “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!”

Songs from Chuck Prophet’s new album “Bobby Fuller Died for Your Sins” led naturally to some Bobby Fuller Four. Also a taste of new albums from Ryan Adams, Son Volt and Alejandro Escovedo. Electronic instrumentals led to a salute to Devo on the anniversary of Bob Casale’s death. Closed out with other anthems of that era from Boston and the UK.

Here’s what I played on the radio tonight:
