Improvise! – January 25, 2016

| Radio

Bridge Band in Prague As the very busy month of January winds down and a Groundhog Day Dance Party looms, Bubble Wrap radio digs into the vaults for dance numbers to prime the pump.  Yes, we want everyone to come to the WVEW Groundhog Day Dance Party at 118 Elliot St in Brattleboro from 7 to whenever on February 2, 2017.  It’s going to be a non-stop groove and a rare chance to dance to irresistible tunes that are not necessarily out of the Top 40.

As for the Bubble Wrap pre-party show, we’re no good at sticking to a theme, so there are some new songs of various genres and some older stuff that we just like.

On the topical side, we also through in “Causing a Commotion” for Madonna’s Women’s March performance and Joan Jett’s cover of “Love Is All Around” in honor of Mary Tyler Moore’s passing.

Most memorable new song — Allye Gaietto’s “Get Gone.”

Listen along from our virtual playlist…
