140 Un-covered II

A change of pace from us, with another Un-covered set, with songs that share the same title but are otherwise unrelated. We do try to make sure that the songs are interesting and not just fit the formula, and so far it has worked.
Tracks came from both Mal’s and my own stashes, and the notes were a collaboration. The resulting show worked well, and we had 19 listeners for most of the time. There may be another Un-covered show, but not for a while

123 Summer Dance set

A respite from weighty analyses of various people or groups, and a bit of relaxation with a Summer dance set, with a big dose of reggae-ish tracks because it’s hot and we don’t want to dance all night at a frantic pace.  I tried for a bit of diversity too, with jazz, blues, bossa nova and folk along with the rock, pop and reggae.

If you liked this show, let us know.  We already have one more in the pipeline.
