Playlist for July 15, 2008

So as you may or may not have noticed, I wasn't on last week. This is because they changed the schedule at the station (yet again) to alternating shifts. So it'll be every OTHER Tuesday for the rest of the summer, I'm afraid. Likewise, there have been technical difficulties getting a recording of the show, so no podcasts for a while. On an up note, I hear there's a Mighty Boosh movie in the works. Rock. Here's a clip of them I enjoy. The playlist from this week follows.
