Your Monday Morning Mock Playlist #5
Your Fauxst was trapped in blizzard country over the weekend with only seven records to get him through the long, white days and the iced, dark nights. This mock playlist is in honor of his record player for keeping him busy and the miniscule space heater for keeping him warm. Those of you traveling any snow-covered roads to work, good luck; and to all - let's listen to these records in their entirety!
This day in history the first active repeater communications satellite goes into orbit; the Chinese river dolphin, the Baiji, is declared extinct; The Republic of Malta is established; Sir Francis Drake sets out on his journey to cross the world; and Taylor Swift has a birthday.

2. Randy Newman - 12 Songs
3. John Coltrane - Giant Steps
4. The Budos Band - The Budos Band
5. Boston - Boston

This mock playlist brought to you by Snappy Comebacks Ex Post Facto. We'll think of something snappy to say later.
