Four weeks ago, I started a show with three of these songs, but kept putting it off because the idea was to play songs that sounded like fall, or at least the end of summer, and summer, where I live, was not ready to leave yet. So I waited. And summer is still hanging around, but not quite like it did four weeks ago.

We have two artists making their Dizzy Heights and Popdose premieres this week, starting with classic pop songsmith Jesse Terry, and later Australian electronic artist Fuzz pops his head in. That’s where the show pivots, but in a good way, I think.

I also shamelessly reference two staff posts in this episode (SYNERGY!). First up, Our Top 100 songs of the 2000s. A song I play in this show made the list…with one vote.

The Popdose 100: The Best Songs of the Decade

And I wrapped up with yet another reference to our, in my humble opinion, damned good list of love songs.

The Popdose 100: The Greatest Love Songs of All Time

Artists besides Terry and Fuzz making their Dizzy Heights debut this week: Dan Wilson (solo), David Mead, Hurts, The Hollies, Toploader, The Pernice Brothers, and Stephen Bishop. Yep, the Bish makes an appearance, and you can probably guess which song.

Thank you, as always, for listening.
