Pirate Transmission Playlists?

What is the best way for me to share my lifelong love of independent and alternative music with you?

#Spotify Playlists. 

To get to this one quickly, scroll down and "Just Hit Play" if you want to get straight to the music.

Every week I engage in my real passion which is sharing music. My goal every week is to work as much interesting music into about a 40-minute package as I can.

Last week's playlist was called "The Blue Phone Book Fuel Rescue."

They are called "Pirate Transmissions" because the song "This is Radio Clash" by The Clash is what inspired this blog's name.

You can just hit play or hit play and scroll down and click on the bolded band names for  more information about the music while you listen.

The crazy names of the playlists were inspired by Captain Beefheart.
