Songs About Smells

If you, too, “get so overwhelmed by olfactory hues” (like Page McConnell croon’s in Phish’s “Lawn Boy”), this is the best themed set for you. Sniff out old favorites and maybe new-to-you songs about the sense of smell on Thematic Static, now supported by the great vinyl production facility based right here in Nashville, United Record Pressing!

This was a special Spring Fund Drive edition of the request show, “The Mixtape We Make Together on WNXP,” but if you feel so called to give while streaming the hour, you certainly still CAN! And your new Sustaining Membership will get you in on a fabulous thank-you gift, like a brand new Member-exclusive t-shirt designed by local artist Emily Elizabeth Miller.

Listeners and Listener-Members alike are encouraged to submit requests for future #ThematicStatic shows on social media @WNXPNashville and/or by calling 615-320-9100 or visiting to leave us a voice memo introducing your song.
