Think. Stay. Go. Change. Why bother with two syllables
when one will do just fine?
Credit goes to Scraps, Popdose’s former Name That Tune
host, as he came up with this idea over a decade ago.
There is some hot classic alternative action going on
here. In fact, this is the only show I’ve ever done that stays in one lane. It
is all modern, or modern-adjacent, from start to finish. This will probably
never happen again.

I’m bringing the mope this week, love birds. If I know
anything about love, it’s that it dies a slow, painful death when the month of
February rolls around. Seriously, for two Februarys in a row in college, all of
my friends and I saw our relationships come to an end. The following year, we
threw a party to celebrate it, and that annual party tradition carried on for
another ten years. The breakups, thankfully, didn’t.
Bands making their DH debuts this week include Alison
Moyet, The Bangles, Deon Estus, David Gray, Elliott Smith (what), Kate Bush
(WHAT), Simply Red, Vitamin Z, and World Party. Wait, really? Sorry, Mr.
Wallinger. I just assumed I had played you by now.
The March show is still being built, but I’ll give you a
hint as to its theme: the giant crab in “Moana” would approve.
