This petered out near the end because the stations copy of the Stax Singles set was all sketched out in terms of discs being in the right cases. Ergo, certain songs were not intended to be played but were meant to be others and so on.

* - This song was completely unintentional and came on only because I didn’t fade the vinyl quickly enough. It’s what’s known in professional radio terms as a fuckup.
