    Your Radio Show

    You're the DJ of your own radio show.  You're on nightly at 10:00 p.m.

    You have time to play ten songs each night.

    What is the first song you're going to play?   What are the other nine songs?

    Any genre, any era, with or without a theme (call it a free for all). 

    Oh, the name of your show:  Lost Tracks.

    Re: Your Radio Show

    I would really have to think about it.  On my first night I would have to set the tone a bit, wouldn't I?  Definitely have to have some nuggets that people don't normally hear, but have to mix in some more familiar stuff as well.  I would hope to be able to keep people guessing a bit.  Maybe something like:

    Wings - Let Me Roll It
    Deep Purple - Pictures of Home
    Stone Temple Pilots - Sour Girl
    Led Zep - The Rover
    Alice Cooper - Under My Wheels
    Lynyrd Skynyrd - Saturday Night Special
    Ray Davies - Other People's Lives
    Tragically Hip - Locked in the Trunk of a Car
    Steve Earle - Copperhead Road
    Eric Johnson - Cliffs of Dover

    I have has always had my own top ten list of favorite songs, so here is what I would force my audience to listen to (in no particular order):

    See You in September
    White Rabbit
    Unchained Melody
    Sing, Sing, Sing
    Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
    Sunshine of Your Love
    Hatikvah
    Jump Into the Fire
    Knocking' On Heaven's Door
    In My Room

    And if I needed a long break, I would play Tales of Hoffman.

    HFN ,glad that you thought to mention a song by Eric Johnson. I just bought his latest CD. He is the most brilliant guitar player that most people do not know about, and he's been around a while too. I really like the live CD with his short-lived band, "Alien Love Child."

    Re: Your Radio Show

    Maybe some of us would have named our radio show "From the Vault" -- not necessarily "lost" tracks.   Either way, you'd have a different set every night.  This could be an ongoing thread, if you really had a show, you'd be planning set lists ahead for weeks. 

    I envisioned someone new to the area, being sort of lonely, and finding my radio program soothing and comforting. 

    The real skill comes in how to segue the songs, too.   Remember our discussion on making our own tapes off the radio?  So much fun.

    It was too hard to come up with a top 10 so I just went with a diverse group of songs I like. INPO.

    Party Girl - U2
    Out Of MY Hands - Face To Face
    Strobelight B-52's
    Limp - Fiona Apple
    Black Country Woman - Led Zepplin
    She's No Lady - Lyle Lovett
    Spirit Of 76' - The Alarm
    So. Central Rain - REM
    Side Two Of Abbey Road - Beatles


    Which puts me over the limit of ten. I might get fired the first day?

    i'd love to hear some of your mixtapes! i like your list for this thread, i was just stuck in the "lost tracks" mindset and i couldn't come up with anything great so i just threw a bunch of sufjan tracks together because i feel everyone (especially you, yoga) would appreciate it.  good segues are the hardest part.

    Hmm..I think I'd call my show Zen Radio - the sound of one hand clapping.  And my playlist would vary every night, based on a theme.  And the playlist would also hide a  word that pretty much ties back into the theme.  Then, because it's Zen, I'd make my listeners

    1. Guess the theme
    2. Guess the word (or words)
    3. Tell me how the word(s) relates to the theme in some way.

    First listener to get it right would get a free prize or whatever giveaways the radio would let me do. 

    On that note (and I actually had to look some of these songs up, BTW) here is my first Zen playlist:

    Alison - Elvis Costello
    Baby, I love your way - Frampton
    Unforgettable - Natlie and Nat King Cole
    The Little Things  -Colbie Cailet
    The Rose - Bette Midler
    Every little thing she does is magic - the Police
    Roxanne - the Police
    Faithfully - Journey
    Love Song  - the Cure
    You may just be the one - The Monkees

    Never Tear us Apart - INXS

    Manic Monday - The Bangles
    Killling Moon - Echo and the Bunnymen
    Time after Time - Cindi Lauper
    Bizarre Love Triangle - New Order

    Nah...take the first letter of the song title - spells out "A butterfly" - which, in Chinese animal symbology, represents Love...so the song list spells out the word that relates back to the songs.
