here’s looking at you, kid: last month’s mix, september 2009;

Now you’re rolling your eyes but I want you to imagine listening to a silly pop song that seems to perfectly describe the way you’re feeling at that moment, driving through suburban Cincinnati in Katie Jo’s bright yellow car. It was a picture perfect moment among many picture perfect moments, and when I said I was putting the song on September’s mix I meant it!

There are quite a few picture perfect moments on this month’s playlist: drivetime radio and great shows and adventures. It’s been another bonkers couple of weeks, but the music has been fantastic.

      DID WE?? I did wonder. Whereabouts? See the thing about that song… I didn’t listen to that much music on the plane to yours because I was feeling so sick, but when I put Marah on for five minutes it perked me right up 🙂
