Playlist for the Unpopular Music webcast for January 10, 2015

 Greetings from Boston, city of curmudgeons!! (or right next door actually)

Olympics in Boston, what could go wrong? We love giant infrastructure projects, building new stadia, the little inconveniences of hosting large media events, outsiders, and change.

Don't let Greg Louganis talk you into it. Especially in these days when it's possible for a man to give birth. Or let's just have a big pin-trading festival instead.

Anyway, enough curmudgeonry, here's today's playlist, after the break...
