Playlist 3-4-11

Started with some O’Jays and other R&B, new and old. Moved to mark Mardi Gras weekend that transitioned into a little set of Randy Newman. Included a big dollop of Radiohead’s new one.

Noted the start of the baseball season with the Baseball Project and closed with a lot of rockin’ Wanda Jackson. Here’s what I played on the radio March 4, a podcast of which is available here:
