(Originally Broadcast 28 January 2012 on KPSU.)

In honor of one of our favorite holidays and favorite groundhogs, this episode of Closet Radio is dedicated to my biggest influence, my mom. My diverse and strange tastes in music, often described as… eclectic, are mostly derived from the wide range of musical genres I heard growing up. You’ll find yourself scratching your head and perhaps questioning if the song choices are right, but you’re probably projecting some hidden meaning when all Mom ever really wanted to do was dance. Disco, funk, motown, soul, ska, good ol’ rock & roll and all sorts of audio hi-jinks will leave you shaking your groove thing and also a good idea of how I ended up so strange myself. These are a few of her favorite songs, some I have fond memories of hearing and some she picked out herself. Trace the roots and find your shadow.
