#WorkdayWrapUp – teenage idols theme & Buckley movie review

Here’s NPR’s review of Greetings From Tim Buckley, the movie I was referencing on-air today after playing Jeff Buckley’s “Last Goodbye”

And tonight’s theme on the Workday Wrap Up will be teenage idols!  As in, songs about being a teenager or artists who were teens when they recorded the song you’re requesting!  We’ll start with a new NZ pop star, Lorde and her song “Royals” at 6pm…

 

Every Weekday at 6pm, we do a request hour with a different theme, started by the New Song of the Day.  Here’s what actually got played among the requests tonight…
