An Eclectic Playlist for A Short Afternoon Trip

Something I Saw or thought I SAw - Part of an afternoon playlist - Bill Morrissey

Eclectic Playlist is the Highlight of An Afternoon Car Trip

This afternoon I made a trip to Walmart and the Cinnaminson Library. I needed to charge my iPhone 7 so I couldn’t pug it into the radio and charge it at the same time, so I brought along my iPod. I always say that I really do need to listen to the older music that I love more.

The playlist reveals the eclectic nature of my music library.
