The other day Snackpoint Charlie’s eagle-eyed (eared?) listener Theresa Manzanares asked what happened to the playlist for episode 35, STORY SONG ANTHOLOGY. Well dear listeners, the sad fact is that there are technical issues with the archived file that prevented me from posting the recording online, so I let it fell through the cracks. I did however make Theresa her own playlist of every song I played that Spotify is currently streaming, which I’m now making available to all (you’re welcome!). You miss the sterling between-song patter, but I’ll make it up to you some other way. Here then is the track list as heard on March 30, with alternate versions of “Rapid City, South Dakota,” “A Taste of the Keys,” ”When I Win the Lottery” and “Hello in There” substituted as the originals were not streaming. There’s a ton of songs I didn’t have time for that night, so If there’s popular demand I may do a Vol. 2 or even amend the playlist. You tell me…?
