Tonight’s broadcast is a rebroadcast of an old playlist from February 26, 2011, which was broadcast during the University Dancer’s Next dance program run.  Why’d I choose this one?  Well, truth be told, yer ol’ frien’ the Man in the Bowler Hat was feeling uninspired and busy today (had his ears lowered this morning and wandered around Carytown for a bit–that can eat a good part of your day), and spent the afternoon feeling distracted and practicing his German and mandolin (and learning how to play “Stonehenge” by Spinal Tap), so I decided to pull an old playlist at random for you tonight.  Well, it turned out to be this one, and the timing couldn’t be better, as the University Dancers are currently doing their Spring 2013 performance.  So put on your dancing shoes, because tonight’s program is all music you can dance to.
