Set List

without comments

I’m awfully proud of the set I put together on Sunday on the Tulsa International Airport’s jukebox—which broadcasts throughout the passenger terminals. The bit that starts with “Okie from Muskogee” and ends with the Village People’s “In the Navy” and Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s “Relax” is downright inspired, right?

It speaks to me, anyway. But I guess it would.
