Playlist for Tuesday, December 15, 2020 (Noon-2pm)
Melodicas in the '60s and '70s (with apologies to Ted Young) Back in September, Ted Young of "Breakfast of Champions" ran with my mojo and delivered two hours of songs with melodicas in them. I like to think my now 8-month series of shows, featuring a focus on a particular instrument for every song, inspired that rascal Ted. Of course I wasn't about to allow that guy to rob me of MY go at melodicas. So here it is, with only two songs done in common. No "alternative," no "indie," no "lo-fi" none of that arena rock that BOC always plays...nothing past the '70s, thank you very much.
