mvyradio HOT SEAT: Life Is Good

Tune in tonight at 9pm, when I host THE HOT SEAT on mvyradio. I’ll play music from the artists performing at next weekend’s Life Is Good festival. I’ve also talked with James MacDonald, who’s the producer of the festival, and he had some wonderful background to share about the company as well as the mission of the Life Is Good playmakers. This is more than just a fun festival with a dynamite lineup…100% of festival proceeds go towards helping children in need. Great music and a great cause. Here’s my playlist for tonight:

Ray LaMontagne – “You Are The Best Thing”
Ingrid Michaelson – “Way I Am”
The Hold Steady – “Sequestered In Memphis”
The Avett Brothers – “Kick Drum Heart”
Martin Sexton – “Happy”
Levon Helm – “When I Go Away”
Robert Randolph & the Family Band – “If I Had My Way”
Raphael Saadiq – “Stone Rollin'”
Maceo Parker – “Hallelujah, I Love Her So”
Michael Franti – “Sound Of Sunshine
Dwight & Nicole – “Cry, Cry”
Ryan Montbleau Band – “Glad” [LIVE at Life Is Good]
Ingrid Michaelson – “Everybody”

TONIGHT AT 9PM!

Song Of The Day

Michael Franti – “Sound Of Sunshine”

I wasn’t sold on this song when I first heard it. I felt like it was a little too poppy for my liking. But after playing it all summer here at mvy, it’s definitely grown on me, and as a hang onto the last few weeks of summer here on the Vineyard, the song (and the video) make me smile.
