Playlist: 06/07/08

Hello Listeners,

Hope you enjoyed today’s program—apparently Al Green did. He called the station, just as I was playing his version of “Pretty Woman.” Unfortunately, he hung up before I could ask him to dial the line to go on air, but I’m sure he would have wished you all well. He’ll be playing at Carnegie Hall later this month. That show announcement, along with some others, is below. The playlist for today’s show follows.

Shawana Howard will be hosting next week. I’ll return on the 21st.
