My Funny Valentine (WPC Radio Playlist: Mixed Plate Fill-In)


Melia, Kiri & Emily 2000 in Joseph, OR


Whirled Peas Café Radio {WPC Radio} filled in for DJ Melia’s Mixed Plate Tuesday, February 8th. Her birthday party that she had planned for the coming weekend got moved up. Melia’s Uncle Semika’s succumbed to cancer almost as soon as he was diagnosed. Melia will be representing our branch of the family in the tradition of fa’alavelave. Much hugging, eating and comforting will be done. Melia will represent us well on that front.

Melia’s birthday is February 14th. For the past 26 years, my Valentine’s Day has never quite been the same! That was the inspiration for tonight’s playlist. Belleruche prompted quite a few callers. One of my favorite finds this year. And quite danceable. Melia doesn’t need too much of  an excuse to dance.

We will miss her at the 15th Anniversary Ball this Saturday. I hope we won’t miss you. Tickets still available at selected locations. Visit our main website for more information.
