Beginning today, I’ll be posting the playlists from my Friday afternoon classes. September 30, “The Long Road,” is deliberately toned down because, well, my boss told me to tone things down. That being the inspiration, and because this weekend happens to be the sixth anniversary of my very first assignment as a journalist (Operation: Ceasefire in Washington, D.C., for URB Magazine), this list is loaded with D.C.-based Thievery Corporation, the hosts of Op: Ceasefire.

09/30, The Long Road

The Richest Man in Babylon, Thievery Corporation

…In which we honor Thievery Corporation, for granting me one of my very first interviews as a journalist six years ago this week; and give “The Long Road” the lead-off position, because it reminds me of Fall.

2. “Blue Skies,” Willie Nelson
