We know… It’s Wednesday, July 2nd. Have you already checked out of work??? Are you sitting at your desk dreaming of 4th of July hot dogs, sparklers, watermelon, and red+white+blue? Well you’re not alone. Judging by my e-mail inbox today, most of your have either psychically or mentally checked out of the office already.

So how can you pass the time while counting down the minutes to that ‘hopeful’ early dismissal tomorrow afternoon? Let TSI help you create your sweet, sweet 4th of July playlist!!!

Our awesome TSI Team has put together their TOP 5 ‘must have’ lists for that big BBQ ‘Merica party on Friday. I’m proud to say these lists are as eclectic, fun, and vast as our wonderful team who is so great and supportive of so many different  genres.
