The Nightowl Radio Show playlist for July 22, 2022

The following is a playlist for the broadcast of the Nightowl Radio Show, a one-hour college radio show on station WHCL-FM.  The show can be streamed tonight at 7:00 p.m. Eastern at

Tonight’s episode is a special challenge episode. Every song on this hour’s broadcast either got its inspiration from, or the band name came from, various comic strips and comic books. And as an additional challenge – I did not reference any songs from Superman, Batman or Spider-Man in tonight’s show.
