DAY 12: GreenRow Books (#LGBPodcast Blog+Pod Tour)

Let's Get Busy podcast Blog+Pod Tour DAY 12: GreenRow Books

Today Beth Panageotou (@epan11) of GreenRow Books, our local independent bookstore, invites me to make a music playlist for the store. So I leafed through the past 100 episodes of Let's Get Busy, thought about some of my favorite songs, and then made some podcast song pairings to go along with the awesome talents with which I've had the honor to speak.

I wrote a little explanation to go along with each song choice and I hope you'll take the time to visit the GreenRow Books blog and check it out. Be sure to let Beth and I know what you think of the playlist by leaving a comment at GreenRow Books.
