Live Ledge #295: Alphabet Street

The idea seemed simple. Just grab a song that begins with each letter of the alphabet. That shouldn't take too long, right?

Of course it's never so easy. When you have a large library, one tends to take a glimpse at all of the possibilities. That was certainly the case with tonight's show. What I thought would take an hour or so to put together ended up with me spending almost an entire afternoon with my iTunes library.

It ended up being a nice little mix of classics with little-herd longtime favorites. From the usual suspects to forgotten bands such as the Vertebrats. It's a fun little listen, and maybe you'll be refreshed on your alphabet by the time it's over!

Grab this via the usual sources, including iTunes and Stitcher, or...
