SESSION TWO: At Home with Rose

It's my non-noise week for my radio show, so a mix of old and new of mixed genre. Okay, Ladyhawke is totally pop, but I love "Paris is Burning". I can't justify it – I just like it.

I'm hoping I can eventually play my show completely live without having to plan ahead, but for now I'm having to do it this way. Been a bit lazy with the links - might add some more in if I have time. I seem to be having a very busy week.

Included are three of my all-time favourite NZ songs - Tall Dwarf's "Nothing's Gonna Happen" (felt like my teenage theme song at the age of 15), The Chills' "Pink Frost" and "Down in Splendour" by Straightjacket Fits. I always did prefer Andrew Brough's voice to Shayne Carter's.

Damn, I wish I'd been listening - Nice playlist!
I love that Mink song - I haven't heard it in around ten years. I once played it on my radio show (I had one for about 6 months on Access in Wellington) when I was 17 - Eep!

I'm a total pop fiend, so I love Ladyhawke. :)

Mink were good, eh? I remember seeing them at Bodega waaaay back.
