Shyboy Tim and I have been co-hosting Shuffle Function for awhile now, and Valentine's Day has always been a tricky holiday to celebrate on the radio. In the past we have played listener's dedications, played love songs, played not so in love songs, and played some of our favorite musician's love songs. We've done it all. But on Friday we both think we stumbled upon a new tradition for February 14th, playing only 45 records, or "singles", on the show. We both utilized the box of 45's that we inherited from our parents for Friday's playlist; Tim borrowing from his Dad's collection and I from my Mom's.
It made for a great morning, and took me back in time over and over again with each familiar tune. I look forward to celebrating Singles Awareness Day next February 14th!
