Playlist for the Unpopular Music webcast for February 7, 2015

Well, this is one of those shows (but, I keep saying that, so therefore I guess it's a typical show). It covers so much ground it verges on (and perhaps attains) incoherence.

The first hour has a set contemplating our current frozen existence. The second brings us on a musical journey to places somewhat warmer.

Face unafraid, the playlist I made after the break ...
