SHUFFLE FUNCTION PLAYLIST FOR JANUARY 10 - 14, 2011

Howlin' Wolf died on this day. Tim and I worked together at Barnes and Noble many years ago. I was a receiver so I worked in the backroom, where I could have a boombox playing. Now I didn't know Tim at that time, but he says that he first suspected I might be a music geek when he heard me playing Howlin' Wolf one day. I think he was right.
