The Vinyl Vault - A Study in Contrasts

It's that time again!  We put together a great show for you tonight.  One of the hallmarks of my record collection is the diversity of music that is included.  I love music - which honestly is a pain in my wallet.  Plus there is just not enough time in the day to listen to all of it!  Of course, it does help when I am in a certain mood to have such a wide range of records to choose from.  

That brings me to the theme we will see tonight.  A study in contrasts.  Randy put together a playlist tonight that represents the two polar opposite extremes in my rock music tastes: the very mellow sweet sounds of acoustic, singer songwriters, and folk rock paired with my love of sometimes aggressive high energy music.  There are some songs that ride the middle ground but you will find a lot of mellow music juxtaposed with high energy and/or aggressive songs.  I love this.  It's a little unsettling.  Tune to from 8-10 PM ET tonight!
