On this pre-Valentines Day show we take a listen to love songs – New Sounds style. We get a taste of songs that say "I love you" in less-than-conventional ways: Costello and the Brodsky Quartet's "Romeo’s Séance;" United States of Poetry/Lou Reed's "Romeo Had Juliet;" Michael Daugherty's "Oh Ken;" Annette Peacock's "Over" and lastly, the gorgeous peculiarity of Amy Denio's "Traffic Island Psycho." Tune in alone with that special sweetheart.
