Songs from Good Movies

With a short prep week (due to my Thursday show), I decided to emplore an idea that had been developing for some time: two hours of songs from Wes Anderson films. Besides loving his films in their own rights, each film is blessed with an exceptional soundtrack and wonderful original compositions. The wealth of choices made it easy to have a a good and fun show. (You may notice a lack of songs from both Bottle Rocket and The Darjeeling Limited. Neither KBUT nor I have the soundtrack to these films, so I only had 3 songs from each film to work with). It ended up being probably my longest playlist due to the shortness of the songs and the wealth of instrumental tracks which I used as background music during my promos and other talking bits.

I tried to record this show, but unfortunately the CD burner malfunctioned and all was lost. It was a really fun and put-together show, so I'm rather bummed about that.
