"We're in the Money" --SATURDAY November 19, 2005

(Week 18)

Here's the playlist I've planned for this Saturday's special 6 to 8 PM EST RADIOLA! broadcast on WHCL. The not-too-subtle theme of money, and the abundance (or lack) thereof, is to commemorate the (tentative) sale of my boyhood home. "Things Are Looking Up," indeed--now we'll (theoretically) be able to hire a certified squirrel wrangler and get the roof fixed. This bids fair to be a bracing alternative to Garrison Keillor:
