Super Awesome Music Times: The Shins, Rilo Kiley, and more!

THREE, count ‘em, THREE episodes of Super Awesome Music Times with Mary for you all today! Alright! I did two themed shows and one regular freeform show in the past three weeks.

On June 11th my theme was The Shins. I was looking at my records as I was about to head over to the radio station, saw my Shins albums and thought “hmm, it would be fun to do an entire Shins show!” And so I did! I decided to play most of all their studio albums and go in order of how I discovered their music. It was really fun to do! And I thought it was so fun I was inspired to do my Rilo Kiley show, which I did the following week, with the same style of following the path of how I originally heard the music. The Rilo Kiley episode was especially fun for me too because they have such a difference in styles from the first album to the last, in addition to each album has a very distinct style in itself as well. So it was really cool being able to hear those differences right next to each other.

This week on June 25th I did another regular just freeform style show. I played a lot of fun music, including some Marvin Gaye and Louis Armstrong I had never heard before, as well as a good amount of new and local music.

Enjoy!
