Playlist for the Unpopular Music webcast for October 4, 2014


Happy National Taco Day everyone!! I am fortunate enough to do the webcast across the street from a fine Mexican restaurant, but how will you be celebrating? Were you able to get through yesterday's cognitive dissonance of it being both the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) and National Smile Day? Did you attempt, like I did, to make your co-workers atone for celebrating National Smile Day in the first place? Were you even aware of National Smile Day? Lucky you.

Anyway, this is one of those kitchen sink kind of shows, a whole enchilada, if you will (no, no, National Taco Day), where styles shift dramatically from song to song and back again. But it's all good and I trust you, the listener, can appreciate it all.

Find today's playlist después de la ruptura.... (FYI, there is no taco related music in today's webcast)
