Wild Wednesday Morning Shuffle - The Champ Mix

Be sure to "Like" Ear to the Ground on Facebook

I'm gonna make this relatively quick. I am actually going out for lunch *gasp*

Have a Happy Thanksgiving (unless you are from Canada - in which case I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving last month or from somewhere that doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving - in which case have a happy Thursday).

Today, we get "Wild" and shuffle up from the playlist of all the songs on my phone....

Trending Tuesday Morning Shuffle - Time is Money or Time is Honey Mix

Be sure to "Like" Ear to the Ground on Facebook

I just wrote and erased a really long, convoluted rant about something that I really couldn't articulate well. Suffice it to say, human beings are complicated creatures and interactions between humans can be even more complicated.

That and this: the best music is that music that moves you and inspires you and energizes you and motivates you and brings some semblance of joy to your life. I know what music does that for me, and if another kind of music does that for someone else, than who am I to criticize that.  Granted, I have been known to dog certain artists or styles of music, but I think I was wrong. I may actively hate a certain artist or style of music. I may sound fake or boring or meaningless to me, and that is fine. But if that music means something to someone, if it moves them, inspires them....

Anyway, it is Tuesday (second to the last day of my work week). Time to see what is "Trending" on E2TG

Thanks to everyone who donated to WXNA during the Fall Pledge Drive, we exceeded our goal!  I know WXNA is a true labor of love for everyone involved, and it is very refreshing to feel that love echoed back from our community.  I am extremely proud to be a part of this incredible radio station!

Heading into a holiday shortened week of shuffles.. thinking about all I have to be thankful for. 

Here is the latest shuffle from our "New Music" playlist.

Featured Friday Morning Shuffle - Drafty Aisles Mix

Be sure to "Like" Ear to the Ground on Facebook

This is my last day to post about the WXNA Fall Pledge Drive, but the drive itself continues through Sunday.  So, if you haven't made a donation, you have just a couple more days to get on board.  You can call 615-933-9962 or go to it's easy as pie. You can make a one-time donation or set up an automatic monthly bank draft. If you give just $6.00 a month (or $72) - or more - you will receive a WXNA coffee mug.  Everyone who donates will receive a limited edition WNXA heart sticker. What are you waiting for?

Well, we made it the end of another week. This is actually the last full week of blog posts in November.  Next week, I will be posting Monday through Wednesday before taking off for Thanksgiving.  The week after that, Friday is the 1st of December!   That means it is almost time for the 3rd Annual Earie Awards.  Wow!

Well, today is Friday so let's see what songs/bands/albums we are featuring....

Much love!  The WXNA Fall Pledge Drive 2017 is going well!  If you haven't pledged yet, there is still time.  Go to to make a quick and easy donation (either one-time gift or an automatic monthly pledge).

If you want to talk to one of our fantastic volunteer DJs, you can donate by calling (615) 933-9962.  I will be answering phones tonight from 10-11pm during Born in a Barn.

It's Thursday, so we go back to the "New Music" playlist to see what is "Trending" on E2TG!

Let's get to it!

Wild Wednesday Morning Shuffle - Just Like Frank Sinatra Mix

Be sure to "Like" Ear to the Ground on Facebook

It's Day 3 of the WXNA Fall Pledge Drive.  If you have not already done so, please consider donating to WXNA today! or 615-933-9962 whenever the station is on the air (like early morning to late night every day).  They have a rad coffee mug if you donate at least $72.00 (that's just $6.00 per month if you set up a monthly bank draft).

It's Wednesday and we get "Wild" on Wednesday... well, our shuffle comes from every single track saved to my phone memory, and the results can get pretty "wild"... 

I added about 200 tracks the other night, and a couple of them show up today...

Trending Tuesday Morning Shuffle - Leave the Rest Mix

Be sure to "Like" Ear to the Ground on Facebook

Another reminder to donate to WXNA during this week's Fall Pledge Drive!  If you donate at least $72.00 (that's just $6 a month as a recurring payment), you get a spiffy WXNA coffee mug, and more importantly, you get the satisfaction of knowing you helped keep Nashville's Best Radio Station on the air! 

Well, the sun is shining and my mood is much improved. I'm not sure if it's the sun or the fact that I got some things done last night (or both). 

Anyway, it is Tuesday, and we have a shuffle into what is trending at WXNA . Between adding some new music to the playlist and cleaning up some of the previously played songs that never got deleted, the list stands at 415 songs.
