Music for the Masses - THG Pre-Party/Warmup to Saturday

This week: a little radio pre-party for The Hanging Garden's monthly dance party, Saturday Sept.19 at the Night Light in Oakland! This month's theme is Siouxsie vs. the Cure, and I'm spinning a short guest set at opening (9 PM!) Naturally, I have too many good songs I want to play to fit into that one set, so a bunch of those made it into today's show instead. plus I'll play a little extra Siouxsie and Cure to get us all pumped for Saturday!
