Modcast #295: Singing About The Ladies

It's all about the ladies this week in the mod world. I mean, it's always all about the ladies in my world, except when it's all about the cocktails. I was about half way through putting the show together when I realized all the songs had one thing in common. They all had a woman's name in the title. So, I figured what the hell it's as good a theme as any and I rounded out the set list with more songs about girls. Pretty good mix too, if I do say so myself.

Modcast #293: What You Do To Me

Got a big show for you this week. And I do mean big. Big and loud. And fast. And rockin'. I just returned from a bit of R&R south of the equator. Spent some time in Santa Tereza a tiny little surfing village a way off the beaten path on the pacific coast of Costa Rica. Sun, sand, surf, and more sun. Can't beat it. It did serve to recharge my internal battery and I'm hoping to deliver that they same sort of recharge to all of my dear listeners.
