      Hello to Rod Mcrimmon

      I did not know your radio station even exsisted, but on Thursday, Sept.10th while I was out jogging, I dialed my little Sony radio (that I listen to on headphones) onto a good song. I kept it on the station and you played a whole bunch more good songs. I managed to get the number of the station ( 101.9 ) and when I got home I googled it to see if I could find these songs on a playlist but either I can’t figure out how to access your playlist or you don’t have one to access online. Would you be able to send me a copy of the playlist for Sept 10th 800am and 100am? Somewhere starting from a Spanish salsa song that I only remember part of the name Esprecion de something or other, and another one called 1000 lovers, but there was a whole bunch of songs in between those two that I really liked as well. I didn’t have time to listen to any more but I’m sure there were more I would probably like too, So that is why i am asking you if you could please e-mail me a copy of the songs you played that morning.
      Thank you so much for your time!!! Again, the date was Sept 10th (2015) 8-10am

      And thanks again!

        Hi Jesse,

        Thanks! The track you heard was The Lula All Stars and Lynn Miles “1000 Lovers.” We’re working on a new design for the website that will hopefully include individual shows playlists for the past week.

      There was a really lovely song today (Thursday July 28, 2016) at around 9:55am and I missed the name. It started as a very minimalist ephemeral duet between a stringed instrument and another instrument. any chance you could tell me what it was?

        Hi Lois, Great to hear from you – sorry for the slow reply, I didn’t realize the comments were filling up on my link. I will check out Nicolas Meier.

      Around 8:30 am you played a lovely cut sung by ‘Iliana Gomez’? Couldn’t stop the car to write her name down. May I ask you to repeat the name for me? Thanks so much!

      Some really cool songs that you’re playing here. Would you be able to play Ink Sticks & Stones “Full Blue Moon”?

      Good morning!

      Enjoying today’s show, and am reminded of a holiday themed reel (Celtic/east coast sounding) you played on November 30th at around 9:30am.

      Can you please tell me the artists and name of the cd?

      Thanks so much for the great tunes Rod!

      Hell Rod,

      The second last tune of today’s show – some of the lines sounded like “I’m a-walking on the wrong side, I’m a-tickin’ to the wrong time…” – who was this please? It has a ska/fast reggae feel to it, and reminded me of The Beat in so many ways, however, I’m pretty sure it’s not them.

      Thanks so much, and I look forward to hearing from you soon! 🙂
