Capital Radio, 9-12: Please & Thank You

Those three magic words your parents pounded into your head as a child resurface on Capital Radio. That includes four different songs called “Please, Please, Please,” two that just had “Please, Please” in the title and a half dozen songs titled simply “Please.” 

The tardy posting to my first pre-recorded show comes in two handy bites above: Please and Thank You, with the latter represented by Led Zeppelin, Bonnie Raitt, The Flaming Lips and My Morning Jacket, among others. Thanks for listening!

Here’s the playlist:
