Welcome to Power Hour
The first time I made a playlist, I was about 10 years old, and I sorted every track on every Kidz Bop album I owned (my mom wouldn’t let me buy the real stuff) into a countdown ranking. #1? Smashmouth’s “All Star.”
Anyway, I still love to create playlists. Whether it’s a career retrospective for one of my favorite artists, a tool for my friend’s half-marathon training, or an ode to Autumn, the right playlist can set a mood, take you back to a certain time and place, or just get you through a workday.
The concept of this blog is simple: a different playlist every week, each on a super-specific theme, roughly 60 minutes in length, and accompanied by my commentary. This is Power Hour.
