Playlist for the Unpopular Music webcast for February 6, 2016

Today, we dig out from the snow by digging the out sounds of Unpopular Music. (my that's clever, I'm going to sit back and enjoy it for a while ... okay)

I don't know about you, but yesterday, when the snow stopped and the sun came out (or dropped below the cloud line, really) it was quite beautiful, with some of the most amazing colors in the sky - pinks and blues and yellow. (No, I was not high.)

So with that in mind, we present a variety pack of music for a snowy morning. Just so you know, the fact that I open with a song called Snowy Morning Blues from an album called 100 Vintage Holiday Classics does not mean that I'm doing my long-threatened show of songs that get played at Christmas that have nothing to do with Christmas, but are actually really about winter. That time will come, I assure you, but not today.

See the playlist after the break...
