This Wednesday happens to be Tom Wait’s 62nd birthday (at least, it is according to Wikipedia, the backup copy of all human knowledge). What better way to celebrate than to have a What Planet Is This?! Tom Waits special on his birthday (Wednesday, 7, December)?
Well, that idea is fine and good. There’s no shortage of good Waits tunes from which to choose, but I thought to myself, ‘Self: what if listeners could pick their own favourite Waits tunes?’
‘A marvelous idea!’ I congratulated myself.
So here’s the thing…
These are the Tom Waits albums that I own:
Bad As Me
Franks Wild Years
Heartattack And Vine
Nighthawks At The Diner
If you would like to hear a particular tune from any of these albums, send me a twit now or anytime during the show (4:00 – 6:00 PM, Wednesday).
Please note: You must use tweeter to request a tune. I won’t be checking e-mail and I won’t be taking calls.
Let’s have some fun with this one and be sure to come back to this page on Wednesday for an update.
