PLAYLIST FOR “MARIE KONDO WEEK!” (2,23.19)

24 Feb

This week’s show was a tribute to the diva of decluttering, the dean of de-accession, the titan of tidying up – Marie Kondo. I played nothing but music that “sparks joy” for me and tossed in a few joyful requests from the audience. Plus, following Marie Kondo’s advice, I gathered all my musical themes, thanked several of them for their service, and summarily threw them away.
