What songs would be on your radio station's playlist...

Postby CornMan » Sun May 27, 2012 1:37 pm

...if you were to operate a radio station at Burning Man.

Please do not post videos. Well, you can post them, but I cannot use them for any kind of list. I would like some ideas that would be easy to copy and paste into a master list. Please identify the genre as rock, new age, dubstep, etc, and the name of the artist. I'll do one as an example on the next post.

I've always been partial to Maggot Brain, a station around here played it for 24 hours back in the day.

One word of advice to the cell phone users out there: DONT count on using your phone for music. It sucks bandwidth and boots everyone else off the channels. MP3 it for fuck sake.

I play records (no, that is not a typo) that have covers that amuse me. I try and describe the cover of the record I'm about to play before I play it.

And lots of Finntroll.

Great suggestions. I'll look into them. I'll especially be on the lookout for some of the more obscure tracks by Sublime.
