Thematic

I try to have themes throughout my show, whether it has to do with music genre, tempo, regions, a certain holiday. Sometimes my music is random, but most times, I attempt to carefully craft a (hopefully) exciting batch of tunes.

I first try to vary things quite a bit, and try to ensure I listen to all the songs and plot out my show and try to build sets that are loosely related. (I have an awesome time doing this, btw!)

Today for example, I had a myriad of mini-sets. Like a husband and wife (Jen Lane and John Antoniuk), a Saskatoon set, a rockin' set, a folky set, a cover set, a poppy set, and a sappy music set (AKA a couple of mushy songs I can't help but love, perhaps in celebration of Hallmark Valentine's Day).

I've given away all my secrets.What do I do now?

So, without further delay, my playlist for February 11!
