Monday Breakfast Blend presents:

There has not been much new music being released in the past two months, and my pile of new tunes has dwindled down to barely enough for a third of a show. So, instead of the usual, I’m pulling from my own collection to bring you two hours of favorite tunes from the past few decades.

If I didn’t give myself the structure of seeking out new releases to share every week, I would probably end up doing a show like this. Probably repeating these artists and songs too much. Probably getting bored. But, the occasional indulgence won’t hurt.

I hope you enjoy this show as much as I enjoy sharing these songs with you!

For me, a good cover song is not a tribute/reproduction of the original recording. It works best when it’s coming from a different genre or style than the performer, who then makes the song their own. Like, taking a hair band song and turning it into a country western. Or a pop song turned punk.

I hope you enjoy this show as much as I enjoy sharing these songs with you!

Our recent fund drive was a resounding success, and as we hit our goal on Tuesday a couple weeks ago, several of us volunteers were hanging out at a nearby establishment to celebrate. The conversations ranged wide and far, as you might expect with a diverse group of people who have one main thing in common: a love of community radio. Many of those present were music DJs, and at some point, the conversation came around to the Indigo Girls and how much both DJ Otto and I are obsessed with them.

The long and the short of it is a gauntlet was thrown and we decided, along with DJ Ginger of the Wednesday Breakfast Blend, to do our part in putting more Indigo Girls on the WRIR airwaves. I then promptly forgot until Otto posted about his show last week, with DJ Ginger following suit.

So, this morning I will do my part to add some Indigo to the airwaves with a live version of my favorite track from Rites of Passage and, if there’s time, another favorite tune from that album as well.
