Schooling Life

It may already be a few weeks into the semester, but that first-day-of school freshness hasn’t faded yet. With the change of the season it still feels appropriate to celebrate new beginnings.

The first show of the academic year celebrated the return to class with an eclectic set of tunes about teachers, students, school-pride, and a bit of delinquency. One lesson I learned while creating this playlist: songs about going not going to class seem to be somewhat more popular than those about going to class.

This fall, Instrumental Voices Radio (on WKNH 91.3FM in Keene) moves to a new day and time. Stream (at from 6-8pm every Wednesday evening. There’s a lot of music in store for the semester ahead.
