Playlist for the Unpopular Music Webcast for April 22, 2017

As I was assembling the program this morning, I came to realize that the challenge of this webcast, and I imagine any radio show, is in making the arbitrary sequence of musical selections seem inevitable. Perhaps this weeks selections are a bit too arbitrary to pull that off, perhaps not.



See the playlist after the break...
