Todays show focused on the inevitable: Death. The idea was that I would play songs by musicians and/or bands that had musicians that had passed away. However, it seems that several listeners didnt quite get the idea as many sent me blue messages saying that such and such band was still around and making music. However, the idea was not to celebrate bands that were dead, it was to honor the musicians from these groups who have passed away.
This is by far an incomplete list as I had a lot more songs to play... however I started the show over an hour late as my wife and I were out picking up stuff for the house. Nonetheless, heres a list of the artists I featured on the show.

Hanging's too good for him! Burning's too good for him! He should be torn into little-bitsy pieces and buried alive!
