Because Songs Matter

The Ajax Diner Book Club – Playlist 6/8/13

The Ajax Diner Book Club is my brand spanking new radio show in Northern Colorado. Hopefully you’ve been to a family reunion before. Remember when your parents reminded you about that one cousin-the one that was a little different then everyone else. And they wanted you to play with that bastard cousin. “Do whatever he wants to do, he has a hard time making friends” your parents told you in the car on the way to the reunion.

I like to think that the Ajax Diner Book Club is something like the bastard cousin of Nine Bullets Radio. We’ve got a facebook page, and you can listen online at

The show airs every other Saturday from 6-8pm mountain time. (That’s a 8pm start on the east, 7pm central, and 5pm on the west coast)

    Good work! Looks like a solid lineup – is it archived or anything like that? Or do we need to tune in to it when its live?

      For right now it is only live. Future episodes I will be able to save a copy but our station has no archiving opportunities but I am going to try and find a way to do that on my own. If anyone has suggestions…

    Thanks for including me and Jack on your playlist! We are in some fine company with the other tracks on your play list. Thanks and keep rocking “Bones on the Desert”. Hopefully some of my Colorado friends checked it out.
