listenership seemed to be up a great deal this week, with a lot of my song selections getting positive feedback.

this may be my last “regular” playlist for a while. with roughly ten shows to do for the rest of the year, i’ve decided to shift my focus from showcasing the new to reflecting on the old for a bit. each of this year’s remaining shows will be dedicated to one year in music this decade, beginning with 2000 and working my way up.

I will be welcoming interaction with readers and listeners during this time, taking requests and recommendations and hopefully shining some light on music you may have missed the first time around. with each shift, i will blog my playlist and progress, posting the occasional mp3 and noting songs and transitions that move me in one way or another as i incorporate them into what will become my definite ipod playlist for the decade, to be unveiled on decemeber 31st, 2009.

so stay tuned. hopefully we’ll all learn something over the next few months and have some fun doing it. it all kicks off this saturday, august 29 at 1pm.
