On Sunday I substituted for a fellow KUGS dj who normally does the Alternative Jukebox from 6-8 p.m. I was delighted to do a specialty show and get to select my own playlist (instead of selecting from a limited number of selected albums from “The Wall”). The following is my playlist. I selected a lot of my favorite songs of the moment/distant past and I’m not entirely sure if they fit in with the regular dj’s format. My only instructions were to “play whatever made [me] happy”, so I did just that.
