Playlist for Your Saxophone is My Guitar
Aired Wednesday 2/26/03 4:00-7:00pm

So much of this stuff is new. Finally we get sent Will Oldham records! The Ramones were by request.

I continue to find cool Fairport Convention spin-off records to play, Sandy Denny was this week's find. Robert Wyatt is amazing. That Byrds song was great.

I played maybe too many long songs? I lost interest in the Cul de Sac and the Brother JT song almost lost me too.

But with the magic of Photoshop I can at least cut out all the heads and backpacks that snuck into my show photos. Here are some flicks of True North from their show at the First Unitarian Church with the Blood Brothers.
