Call us old fashioned, but we're suckers for a good playlist. So, when we were thinking of our V-Day tunes, we had to turn to some of our favorite DJs in town. No, not those kids on their MacBooks in the club—we're talking old-school radio guys. And perhaps no local radio station is as near and dear to us as WVUM. The names have changed plenty over the years, but the station's often sole commitment to good music offers an alternative to the usual 40 songs played all day on every other station. No offense to the Grammy winning Ms. Adele...there's only so many times we can hear "Set Fire To The Rain." Here to provide us with a playlist are five of our favorite music curators and hosts on WVUM. The five and their respective shows shows are Savanna/The New Folk, Amber/Electric Kingdom, Francis/The Session, Uchi/Dead Air, and Laura/Vamos A La Playa.
"Agnes" — Johnny Flynn
"Weightlessly In Love" — Sleeping In The Aviary
