Music Show

Continuing this August's musical extravaganza, I played a series of song that all had one thing in common. I was testing listeners to see if they could guess that commonality. After the playlist (below), I will reveal the answer.

The Answer

So what one thing do all these songs have in common? Each song is the opening track for its respective album. Yes, it's a hard answer to get, but it helped me put together this playlist.

Other Music heard on the show...

Dimland Radio opening & closing theme song: 'Twist' by Tones On Tail

That's it! You should know that I am not able to archive the music shows I do due to the limitations of Z Talk Radio's music license. So, if you want to hear the music you have to tune in. Then I'll see you next Friday night for Dimland Radio 10 Central, 11 Eastern on www.ztalkradio.com for another music show and, then, Saturday 11pm Central, midnight Eastern for another regular edition of Dimland Radio.
