For my last Music is My Girlfriend before my return trip home (I will miss 2 shows), I decided to be so very creative and do a "going-home" theme. This featured mostly songs with the word "home" in the title, but also roadtrip songs and place-name songs. It went well, but was pretty mellow and depressing (based on the songs I played). I was tired and not much was happening in the way of studio visitors, so it worked. Thanks to Kellan for hanging out, and also Josh and Andrew for stopping by upon returning from their homefront (the frontrange). Tom was able to call-in and listen from back in Indiana, so many thanks to him as well.
