Theme: TweePop, Seattle, and little bit of Finland
|On this show I had a set where I highlighted the CDs that I picked up while I was out west in the week before the show. My first musical stop was Seattle where I saw Lykke Li, El Perro Del Mar, and Anna Ternheim, the show was excellent, the venue was excellent, you can hear my review on the podcast (although I did go to Calgary and Banff as well there wasn't much of a musical part to that part of the trip).|
Also in Seattle I visited Easy Street Records ( http://www.buymusichere.net/stores/easystreet/ ), a cool fountain( http://nedkahn.com/water.html# and look at the Encircled Stream), and a cool library ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:SCL9.JPG ) .

Theme: Very Random
|This was pretty much a random show with a poppy set, rockin' set, laid back set, funky set, and even a failed set.|
I'll just talk about the failed set, ahh the magic of live radio. I played the song Twee by Tullycraft and then had the idea to play songs by the bands that are mentioned in the song. Of course I didn't do any pre-show planning so I was hoping to grab the songs while I was there, but nothing worked out, I couldn't find any of the music either at the station or even on the web. So instead of my usually 5 or 6 song set I only managed to find 2 of the artists mentioned in the song and I just decided to quit the set rather than struggle on.
On a side note, one of the bands I did play was the Posies who happened to be playing their 20th anniversary show when I was in Seattle last week, I didn't go, but I saw it listed.
