16 December 2020: Blizzard at the Foot of Sugar Mountain

This episode didn’t actually air on whcsradio.org because apparently GoDaddy suspended the site. I still did the episode, though, for you all to hear on here.

Set 1

“Sugar Mountain” by Neil Young

Guess I can’t stay on Sugar Mountain anymore. I (finally) turned twenty earlier this week, so I felt obligated to play this song.

“River” by Joni Mitchell

Well, it’s coming on Christmas, so…

“The Blizzard of ‘96” by the Walkmen

As I recorded, a snowstorm was beginning to brew, so this felt appropriate.

“Abel” by the National

“I Am a Ghost” by Love as Laughter

RIP Sam Jayne.

Set 2

“Anthems for a Seventeen Year-Old Girl” by Broken Social Scene

“Schizophrenia” by Sonic Youth

“Chemicals” by Tigers Jaw

“The Woodpile” by Frightened Rabbit

“American English” by Idlewild

Set 3

“Teenage Spaceship” by Smog

“Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk” by Rufus Wainwright

I’ve been meaning to dive into his career for a while; from the Apple Music “Essentials” playlist this track stood out.

“One Night is Not Enough” by Snow Patrol

“Stars” by Hum

“Dope Cloud” by Protomartyr

Set 4

“Crystalised” by the xx

“(This Is) the Dream of Evan and Chan” by Dntel

Famous for being, basically, the first Postal Service song.

“Wolf Like Me” by TV On The Radio

“The House That Heaven Built” by Japandroids

One of many rousing anthems from the ‘droids.

“The Unguarded Moment” by the Church
