Still playing catch-up from things missed on vacation, suddenly I feel a lot closer to Brad Meltzer:
After nine years, a radio show finally asked me to select my favorite songs to play during a book interview. You know how long I waited for that? It’s the music lovers dream–you get to play Casey Kasem–you get to play YOUR music and people listen–like sharing your ultimate mix tape with the world. And I love mixes. My entire four years of college were filled with mixes, especially dance mixes. Here’s the list of them, and promise, all of these are real (sadly):
- Meltz E. Fresh
- Meltz E. Soul
- Bell Biv DeMeltz
- Please Meltz Don’t Hurt ‘Em
I will say, Meltz E. Soul was designed to be the ultimate make-out mix. Never worked. Too much Prince, not enough Keath Sweat.
I’m not convinced by the list of songs he selected for the show, though. Sure, “Ooh La La” by the Faces is good, but Dave Matthews, Brad? Dave Matthews?
