Playlist for March 22, 2010

Spring break is here, so I'm covering a few shows for other DJs who are out of town. I enjoy subbing other people's shows because not only does it fulfill some of my contract obligations as a volunteer at KCSB, it also lets me play to an entirely new audience. My playlists end up being a mix of my favorite music at the moment.

Monday morning show... 9am-11am.

Happy Birthday "Pink Strawberry Shake" - New
