Heavy Friends
Saturday January 17th, 2015 with Heavy Ben Armstrong & Chris Ikonomopoulos
A Memorial to some musicians who passed away in 2014.

On tonight's program, Heavy Guest Ben Armstrong plays tribute to musician who sadly passed away in 2014. To appropriately haunt the situation, some sort of supernatural happenstance prevented the original track list from remaining on this earthly planet. As a result the list below has all the songs that were played but not in the [exact] show's order. As a bit of balance to the passings, a short selection of songs by people celebrating birthdays on Jan 17th also made it to air and is included at the end of the playlist...although not necessarily played at the end of the actual radio program.
