John Henry Vs. The Steam Drill

A few days ago I downloaded the latest version of iTunes, which features a new thing they're calling "Genius Shuffle", which makes some rather highfalutin' claims about its ability to put music together.  I chose to take this as a challenge to my own abilities in that line, and my 9.30.13 show is my response.  Using only the music in my iTunes library (all of which is also in the A24R library), I programmed one hour and let the "Genius" program the other.  Now I'd like to know--can you tell which is which?  And if so, which did you like better?  The show, and the playlist, divided into First Hour and Second Hour segments, can be found right now, and for the next couple of weeks, in the Vault.  Check it out, make your guess, and report it here as a comment.  If you want, you can write to me at logovore@gmail.com.  Thanks for playing--tell your friends & neighbors they can play too!

Boy. This is tough. I've been cogitating on it for long enough though. I'll just go with my gut and my 1st impression - 1st set - steam drill ---2nd set - John Henry.
