Sweet Oblivion playlists – update!

Just catching up on the playlists for the last few shows – the last two shows were repeats because of Christmas time busy-ness, but now things are all back on track for Sweet Oblivion in 2010, have no fear...

On 2nd December I started off crazy with some hip hop, and then got a bit mellow, ending on what is one of the greatest jazz tunes ever, Miles Davis’s ‘So What’. It’s so great to get to play a huge range of music on the show, there’s nothing like rooting through records and just going for what feels ‘right’. The full playlists are after the jump.

Subtle The Mercury Craze – ‘For Hero, For Fool’ (Anticon)
