10/28/10: Geography

Dusting off another playlist from October.  This week was lots of fun.  I took the special feature* from last week and ran with it for the entire show.  Those that know me well, know that I love maps and geography in general as much as rock and roll itself.  Therefore a geographically based special feature was inevitable.  So that’s what tonight’s show was all about.

Fuzz Factory: Music Geography 101.  Around the world in 34 songs.
