Playlist 10-1-10

Methodically went through all of the recently released names of nominees for this year’s inductees of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, from Joe Tex to Chic. All except Bon Jovi (this radio show has standards).

Also some more new stuff from John Legend & The Roots, Superchunk, Blonde Redhead and such, and heralding shows this week from Tim Kasher and Micky Dolenz (at the Berlin Fair Sunday!).

Here’s what I played on the radio today:
