CHIRP Playlist: Saturday, October 22, 2011

Who would have guessed that an empty radio studio in a manufacturing building would be creepy at midnight when you’re there all by yourself? Crazy, isn’t it?  Made a couple of good musical discoveries, though, of artists I’d never heard before randomly selecting them to play. That’s always a plus.

Here’s what I played to close out Saturday night. Your next chance to hear me is on Saturday, November 5th, from noon to 2 pm (Central).
