2/12/2008 Dig Up The Roots

 

An odd collection of songs about and for the most wonderful and maddening part of what makes us humans human: L-U-V.

Dysfunction, desperation, passion and primitive motivations mark this Valentine's Day. There are so many songs of love, these on this show talked about some of that stuff in dark and humorous ways.

Women Rock-A-Billies; some of my Mom's 45 RPMs; Ella singing songbooks and old folk tunes provided 2 hours of a very mixed bag.
