No Monday Music Club tonight

For anyone who might be peeking at this blog to see evidence of a show tonight, no dice. Technical difficulties at the station preclude us from broadcasting at this time. (Grr). With any luck, this'll be solved quickly and we'll be back on the air very soon.

Monday Music Club 7/9/12 playlist

Interesting and fun night. Had two good requests from attentive listeners (What could be better?). The challenge with one of them was the Dean Martin request, which I had told the caller dated from the mid-60s. And I know the song, but I was off on the date, too, and when I heard it I said, "uh huh, 50s!" So, we went from early 1970s in the evening back to 1954, quite a jump.

So my nerdy little challenge was to try and connect dots back to early 70s after that. I don't think I was entirely successful, but I did appreciate the request! The Groundhogs were the second request of the night. I love the Groundhogs.
