Ambient Signal - 6/15/10

WRPI 91.5fm!
http://www.wrpi.org/ for webcast
Tuesdays 6-8pm

Well...2nd to last show ever. The final Ambient Signal will be next week and will be extended! It will be either 4-8 or 6-10 once I work out the details. Hopefully a new show will be taking over my slot after me and it will be very similar! Keep an eye on this space to find out more.

Today's show is sort of a two parter with next week being the second part. This week I went through and culled my iTunes for my favorite songs of the past few years based on play counts and sort of cherry-picked from those. It's unbelievably hard to make a compendium of your favorite songs and decide which ones are better than others..but there are those few special ones that really stand out. Filling 4 hours next week will be a challenge but fun at the same time. In between song sets I'll be talking about how some of these bands stood out for me over the years and how I first got into them. I hope you enjoy.
