On today's show, recording artist Moby was the BPP's first ever guest DJ! So what does that mean? It means every song you heard, besides show and segment theme music, was hand-picked by Moby for our show. When he was in our studios for an interview the other day, he took the time to discuss some of the songs he picked, and to explain his obsession with songs that conjure eras he didn't experience.

So click the listen link above to hear Moby's playlist commentary. It's chock full of stories, insights, song clips and a sneak preview of one song off his new album "Last Night," which comes out in March.
