R&b Flashback 11-09-08 - Obama Election Mix - We're A Winner


Hi everybody,

I did a special show this week in celebration of last Tuesday's election! It was hard not to be inspired by the whole thing, and I worked a lot the past few days to try and plan out all my tracks and write down some meaningful stories and background. Not normally my style to be so prepared, but it's good to feel inspired.! The idea behind this show was to try and put last today's events in perspective by listening to the music that looked forward to last Tuesday in all it's best measures. Grant Park on Tuesday felt like the cadence to a sweet Chicago soul song, and I am hoping today's show can help put us back in that moment for just a little bit longer and help us better appreciate what happened. Enjoy!

Hi Scott, really nice set you put together. I caught most of it on Sunday from the stream.

Courtl*nd? D*nte? Or Shakey? Your username is an appropriate Danny's metaphor! Thanks for the feedback man.
