Playlist for the Unpopular Music Webcast for April 1, 2017

I had toyed with the idea of doing an April Fool's program, playing a bunch of overplayed classic songs. A "songs you know by people you've heard of" kind if show as that ad, was it for Mix 98, used to go, albeit with songs I actually like, of which there are plenty.


Instead, I decided to plow ahead with what passes for a usual show - a bunch of white-guy jazz, a trans-century, multi-genre freeform set. It does end with Fleetwood Mac, so there's that.

See for yourself after the break...
