Live Ledge #160: Shuffle

Ok, I have a confession tonight. I had no idea what to do for tonight's show. All week long I attempted to come up with a theme, and just drew a blank. Nothing. Nada.
So last night I did a little experiment. I opened up iTunes and set it to shuffle play, and created tonight's playlist in that manner. To be honest, though, I skipped the tracks that wouldn't fit on the realpunkradio network. But anything that could possibly work was grabbed, and tonight's show was played in that exact same order.
This admittedly lazy method of programming a show actually worked! It chose some of the usual acts you head on Live Ledge (Replacements, Elvis Costello, Clash), along with quite a few that I've ignored for years and years (Gruesomes, Obits, Future Primitives, Muck and the Mires). Even better, outside of "I Will Dare", shuffle tended to pick more obscure tracks. Quite a few of the regular artists were represented by live tracks, radio appearances, and b-sides from expanded reissues.
