With over 600 songs in the daily rotation on Acoustic Pie Radio, it’s somewhat unusual for the same song to be voted into the Top 20 two months in a row. This month, however, Krista Detor (no. 1 last month) returns with the same song at no. 9. And I’m glad I added a favorite old Still on the Hill song “Words on Birds” a few months back because it has also made two appearances on the Top 20 since being added (no. 4 in July and no. 17 this month).
CD compilations designed for radio promotion can be a mixed bag. But I always seem to find something I love on the Acoustic Rainbow Roots collections. This month, two such songs were also found liking by Acoustic Pie listeners: Cris Williamson’s at no. 8 and Sara Hickman’s at no. 12. You can also find these songs on the artists’ own albums by checking out their websites.
Jason Mraz admirably represents San Diego with a no. 3 showing this month as does John McGaraghan (no. 19) who used to live in San Diego and still drops in now and again!
Thanks for voting and thanks for listening to the Pie!
