    I love Coldplay’s The Scientist!

  2. Michael says:

    Great stuff as always my man. When are you gonna quit bullshittin’ and get a job as a DJ??? You know you want to. You know you need to. 🙂 Only problem is finding a station that won’t hold you to playing the usual suspects.

    Since I don’t see Brandy’s Talk About Our Love or Michael Jackson’s Heartbreak Hotel… I’ll assume you are still editing…
    LOL! just kidding. Everyone keeps telling me Amerie’s album was good. I still haven’t even listened to it.

  4. KB says:

    Nice lineup. I’m in Primo mode over on my radio blog.

  5. MsThing says:

    Thanks for the Friday Flavors, EJ. Listening to these tunes have made my work day a little smoother. It’s good to see Amerie on the list. Her album was slept on by many.

  6. ANFANEE says:

    AMERIE’s cd was pretty good. i might put her back into rotation this weekend, and plus i’m in a lovey dovey mood.

    Your popup link didn’t work for me but luckily it’s not one of those funky ones that won’t let you copy & paste it…nice stuff, i wish there was radioblog for macs, i’d be so all over that :[

  8. Ryan says:

    love the radio blogs, eric! yes, Amerie AND Lina were slept on…a little too “out there” and ahead of the curve if you ask me…
    especially Lina
    but good stuff though…hope all is well with you.

    Woah! Didn’t know this was an educational site! I’m by no means the music maven you obviously are, so i appreciate the reviews. (Now i gotta go back and check out previous volumes.) Keep it coming, my brotha!

    how cool is that radio blog dealy? i’ve got my playlist streaming using php/javascript (and Evil Media Player on PCs running IE only) but my flash player (which reads an xml file written by php) doesn’t stream, it has to load the whole file. (it’s under ‘we play around’ in the sidebar if you haven’t seen it)
    i downloaded it but dammit i want the .fla file to play with! i wanna see how they flashscripted that bad boy. cross browser cross platform streaming mp3s! eeeeeeeep!
    *ahem* perhaps that seventh cup of coffee was a bad idea.

  11. Steph says:

    i’m hoping that one day you will say, “steph, i’m making a radio blog especially for you!” *smile*

    visit this online exhibition called , many good black and white photos of musicans, including the GREAT Mica Paris. Pogus Caesar took the picture in 1987, it would have been around the time that MY ONE TEMPTATION was being constantly played on the nation’s radio stations.
