Playlist 9-9-10

Started with some old soul. Then, the death of a former ELO cellist from a freak accident — his van was hit by a runaway 700-pound hay bale — leads to the most tasteless set of songs of the day. Songs that featured Mike Edwards and those featuring the word “hey.”

Lots of new stuff from Superchunk, Of Montreal, Elf Power and such. Some new Dirty Projectors leading to a little Dylan set. Salutes to shows this week in the area by John Fogerty, Vampire Weekend and the Zombies.

Here’s what I played on the radio this morning:
