AnalogPlanet Radio’s WDFU HD2 “Dreams” Radio Show Now Streams Here

This week’s show features songs about dreams. Unbelievably, the library does not contain either “Sweet Dreams” by The Eurythmics or “Dream Weaver” by Gary Wright. While “Dream” by The Everly Brothers was supposed to be included, an editing error omitted it as you’ll hear. Due to time issues, there are a few more than usual digital clips for which I apologize.

This past Friday the eclectic songwriter John D. Loudermilk passed away, so the show begins with a short tribute to him but we didn’t include Paul Revere and The Raiders’ “Indian Reservation” or George Hamilton IV’s “A Rose and a Baby Ruth”.

The host was very distracted today because of tonight’s political debate. In fact he was “flying”. Enjoy the show!

By far my favourite Roxy tune! Nice inclusion!

Bram Tchaikovsky's "She's the Girl of My Dreams" would've been a perfect follow-up to Roxy!

I love Marianne Faithfuls interpretation of Boulevard of Broken Dreams off the Stange Weather LP!

not in a plane, then the debate may have made more sense to you than anyone else or at least have been more watchable...ha ha ha. Now, you always say not to watch such things if you plan on setting up a turntable...hmm, that means you won't be able to be around turntables for a couple of months now! Uh oh!
Michael, it's Eric, I'm kidding with you.
Great selections for this show despite the errors and such. I see at least a couple of favorites in there. I was not aware that you liked The Smiths, great band among many others. The Moody Blues selection could not have been more perfect.

What about one of my favorites, Electric Prunes " I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night "

I should have caught that, I grew up with that one. Good one Nelson!

For this relief much thanks! Great set list, but everyone needs a quibble, so mine is - what, no Blondie ("Dreaming")?

I believe you have a mistake in the headline.... Unless you're issuing a big "FU" to the radio station.
