I'm having fun picking song titles as my blog titles lately.
Today, my first hour was pretty much solid rockin'. It was constructed as a musical jolt of energy, and also provided a bit of catharsis as I was building said playlist. The second hour had a good mix of poppy and folky songs.
I usually try to have little mini-sets of genres/tempos, but I just let the music lead me today. The great thing about CFCR is that we are able to play a wide variety of artists from all different musical walks. Wonderful, I tells ya!
