Erik's Radio Playlist, 9/18/10

So the College of Wooster has for some reason decided to allow me on the radio. Unfortunately, being a college radio station, things don't always work right so the streaming is broken. Otherwise, I'd let you know when I'm going to be on. Essentially, it'll be on Sunday afternoons when I'm in town and there's room. So occasionally.

Last Sunday was my first go around. Went pretty well I guess. Thought I'd put the playlists on here. I have 2 hours. I split it into 4 sets of different kinds of music. I could do a more coherent show, but I like to mix it up. I started with an R&B set, went to old time and bluegrass, followed by alternative rock broadly defined. I ended with a set of rock from the late 60s and early 70s.

Here's the playlist:

1. Ben E. King, Spanish Harlem
2. Stevie Wonder, Pasttime Paradise
3. Howlin' Wolf, Howlin' for My Darling
4. Clyde McPhatter, Long Lonely Nights
5. Marvin Gaye, I'll Be Doggone
6. James Brown, Think
7. Wilson Pickett, Don't Knock My Love
8. Mavis Staples, Pop's Recipe
9. Mance Lipscomb, So Different Blues
10. Sam & Dave, Soul Man

5. The Williamson Brothers & Curry, Gonna Die With a Hammer In My Hand (which is a version of John Henry)
6. Dry Branch Fire Squad, Atlanta is Burning
7. Jimmy Martin, Truck Drivin' Man
8. Larry Cordle & Lonesome Standard Time, Southern By the Grace of God
9. The Meat Purveyors, Pain by Numbers
