Session 12 – 16 June 2017 – Theme: Exercise

From my now-very-large-collection of music, I picked through them for anything that had ‘walk, run, dance’ and variations on the theme of exercise. None of them could actually be used during an exercise session, yet it was amazing to discover how many songs suggested exercise.

Session #6 – 21 April 2017

After a two week absence, I went in with a 8GB flash drive loaded with only my last five playlists – yet still managed to play a lot of stuff I hadn’t actually played before.

I always include at least 60 songs each week, but only about 40 get used. Handy, because some songs don’t always turn out to be good for radio – as I have discovered a few times!

Here they are. I bet you enjoyed them!

  • We Didn’t Start the Fire – Billy Joel
  • Heroes – David Bowie
  • Jukebox in Siberia – Skyhooks

Wow, that was a good mix. I play at least 2 U2 songs every time – as they are still my favourite band in the world! And I like to close off with ‘My Island Home’ by Christine Anu, but only if it’s sunny. Just an egocentric thing, nothing more.

Anyhow, hope you all enjoyed my playlist. Until next time, have a good weekend!
