CHIRP Radio Playlist -- January 9, 2010

My unintended hiatus has been due to many factors. A big one is my involvement in the Chicago Independent Radio Project. We are trying to get a low power FM radio license to run a community music and arts station. While legislation that will allow for such a station in a large market like Chicago is winding its way through Congress, we are starting an Internet station that will launch on January 17, 2010.

We are in beta testing mode. My show will be on from 9 to noon (CST) on Saturdays. I did my first practice show. Here's my playlist:
