Playlist for the Unpopular Music webcast for June 20, 2015

This was supposed to be a good show. I had all week to put it together, yet here I am, Friday at midnight, finishing it up. I hope you enjoy it regardless. (I also "finninshed it up" by including a song sung in Finnish, ha, ha! ... oh yeah, time to get some sleep.) We also have some a bit too on the nose observations of Father's Day and the first day of summer.

By the time you read this, the show will be over, and I'll be feeling much better about it.
