PLAYLIST FOR “SEASON FINALE 2017 – SUMMER LISTENING ASSIGNMENTS” (7.1.17)

3 Jul

I’ll be gone for the next 8 weeks while WMNR broadcasts live concerts from Tanglewood by the Boston Symphony Orchestra. So on the season finale, I assigned music and singers who should be on everyone’s summer listening list. I also threw in a few requests and some music I’ve been wanting to play this season but couldn’t find the right theme.

Although I won’t be doing live shows for a while, I’ll be uploading new podcasts on PRX, the Public Radio Exchange, all summer, here:
