PLAYLIST FOR “SLACKER WEEK” (5.17.14)

17 May

Singers are always singing about picking yourself up and never giving up and keeping your eyes on the prize. Anyone sick of it? Just me? Ok, but it’s my show and I can play what I want. And this week I wanted to pay musical tribute to the slackers of the world. They may not make much of a contribution, but they make our small achievements look better.
