COMMENTS:

Darrly says: He really loves Trudy Lynn’s “Watch The One”. Cecily likes it too. So does Tori!

Cecily says: She likes Sammy’s song “Better” and she likes it better than some other songs. (snicker)

Tori says: I am loving R.LUM.R.! Thanks for sending it guys! We also added songs by Tunes and PooPooMan which will be reflected next week. Marvin Gaye’s enduring influence is really making itself felt on songs from artists like October London and Tim Terry. And with Childish Gambino and some of the other tunes we’re airing, there’s a retro thing on the air that sounds so good. I really wanted to add Legacy, that tribute that Faith Evans and Puffy Combs did to Biggie, because parts of it are nice and we appreciated what they were trying to do and I liked hearing both Faith and Puffy Daddy. But Biggie Smalls was nasty and it would take way too much editing so that’s out. It was good hanging this weekend with Mitch Faulkner and his wife Brenda who celebrated part of their anniversary over here doing music locations with me in the Hit Recording Capital of the World. It was fun. Tori
