89.3 The Current: This one’s filled with music I fell lin love with by listening to The Current. It includes A Nervous Tic Motion of the Head to the Left by Andrew Bird, Love Love Love by the Mountain Goats, an in-studio version of Girl Inform Me by The Shins, and 27 other songs.

Fall into You: I’m not sure what this is, I think it’s autumny sounding songs. Features You are Free by Joseph Arthur, Des Moines by Halloween Alaska, Lost Horizons by the Gin Blossoms, and 41 other songs.

Heartbroken: Duh. Includes I Just Wanted to See You So Bad by Lucinda Williams, Whatever Makes you Happy by Paul Westerberg, Untouchable Face by Ani DiFranco, and 13 other songs for the broken hearted.

    *this reminds me of Vodo making fun of Belle & Sebastian by saying he has nothing against them because if he ever went to a concert he know he could kick the ass of every person there. Which I guess being a skinny white guy he doesn’t get that feeling too often.

    Have I mentioned how much you kick ass? An itunes genius of the Super variety.
