Show # 3 'Can You Feel Me Dancing'

*Mix show # 1*

Dance Music.
We all have different ideas about what it is.
And you know what?
They are all correct.

What is 'danceable' (hmm, am I inventing words again?) to me, may leave others with furrowed brows (wha-huh?) and vice versa.

My friend Amy knows all too well about this as well.
The Cure... The Smiths... Depeche Mode... VHS Or Beta...
It is only when we hear music like this that we'll say...
"I am ready for the floor."

Amy made me a couple of mixes back in the Spring of this year.
One in particular was entitled 'Can You Feel Me Dancing?'
The title was taken from movie of the same name.
Amy and I would frequently spot it whilst at the video store and giggle and mock the rather silly-sounding title, never actually renting it.

But it made an interesting and poignant title for a mix -a sampling all of our dance music.

This show is not strictly about dancing though. But I won't go on any further about it, since in the show both Amy and I give plenty of commentary.
So you simply will just have to listen for yourself.

So, the lovely people at KWCW has accepted my plea for a slot in their Fall programming!
I'm really excited because it didn't happen last Fall.

I will just have to keep up the mindset that there's no way I can run out of ideas for shows.
There really is no way actually.

To elaborate, I've even had the idea of doing a show centered around songs where the singer breaks into laughter (and yeah, there are quite a few songs).

As you can imagine, the possibilites are quite limitless.

So, if you have means, please do have a listen.
Elvis will be listening, well not really, but he would if he knew about it.
Every Tuesday afternoon
1 to 3 pm

Since I'll be doing new shows, I'm going to post the past Summer shows more rapidly. So stay in touch with the blog, you never know how soon I'll post a 'new' old one.
