So I had my first solo flight on Wednesday night. Since the show launched in December, I've always had a co-host, even when Andy was conspicuously absent as he was this past Wednesday. Andy couldn't make it this time because evidently, his band was, like, um, gallivanting across the country playing rock and roll for people or something. Anyhow, this time it was just me, which meant that there was, well, less talk and more rock. Uh, well, actually, now that I think about it, I wasn't all by myself, and there was some talk. The guys from Peña and Alan Alda stopped by and we talked about and played a few tracks from each of their new records, along with a slew of other handpicked tunes. See the complete playlist after the jump.
