In emergency situations, we need to resuscitate the radio.

For those times when my iPod dies or I can’t access via laptop, I turn to the radio. Especially in the car, that mix CD I made gets a little overplayed.  Sometimes I forgot that essentially an entire playlist of songs shuffled by genre awaits me at the push of a button.
