AAT #016 (06-19-09): Up-to-Date with Dr. Todd

This show was originally webcast soon after David Letterman made an infamous joke about a Palin daughter, and the right wing went nuts. Ironically, as I finally get around to typing up the playlist four months later, Dave has just admitted sleeping with several female staff members. I haven’t heard of any protestors outside the Late Night studios. Anyway, there you have it: you’re now Up-to-Date with Dr. Todd.

Wait, who’s Dr. Todd? Well, Dr. Todd is one of the main driving forces behind popular blog, The Ripple Effect. He’s starting his own boutique record label, Ripple. In 2009? In the middle of a terrible recession? Yes. Because he is obsessed. Because he is a true believer in the power of music. Because he wants everyone to have a chance to hear the music he loves. And because he has superhuman levels of energy and a little spare cash.

On this show, we featured a bunch of recent Immersion Composition Society recordings, plus some special records brought in by Dr. Todd and Corinne.
