PLAYLIST FOR “NAME-DROPPING” (11.4.17)

5 Nov

I spent the evening naming names – not in a Robert Mueller way, but by playing songs that have at least one reference to a real person.  Some name-drop many more than one person and others have spontaneous ad-lib shout-outs. The final song doesn’t really name-drop any person, but it was my way to say we’re thinking about you, NYC after the events of last week.
