overall sound. In the most recent show, a song by The Gaslight Anthem followed a Bruce Springsteen song because the two recently toured together. The program often has themed shows, including last year’s “Dylan and his Derivatives,” which played songs by Bob Dylan, along with covers of his songs and songs supposedly influenced by Dylan. Coppinger encourages people to make requests, rarely turns down a song and gets about one call a week, often from prisoners at the Washington State Penitentiary.

Highlights from this week’s show:

Bruce Springsteen “Land Of Hope And Dreams”


The Gaslight Anthem “The ’59 Sound”

Divine Fits “Shivers”

Hot Hot Heat “You Owe Me an IOU”

Barenaked Ladies “ONE WEEK”
