We’re about two months away from the launch of Little Records Radio, so why not share one of my programming ideas that involves the number two. Here’s two hours of programming, titled “Two-fer”, featuring back-to-back songs from artists. The concept is simple: these songs appear consecutively on the album from which they come and they bleed together, hence a “two-fer”.
