Playlist: 05/03/08

Hello Listeners,

Apologies for how long this took—it’s been a busy week. Hopefully you still remember the tunes you didn’t quite catch the names of. If you have questions, about shows, music, whatever, just email me. This week, Alex Greer, aka Delicious Dr. White Chocolate, will be hosting. Then Shawana Howard will take over for awhile, as I’ll be out of town—but expect me back, in rotation with Shawana, all through the summer.

The playlist follows some concert announcements.
