Last year, for kicks, I "revived" Mara Davis' Radio Free lunch, which she did on Z93 and Dave FM for 18 years, taking a theme, often timely, and matching songs that fit the theme.

I plucked topics, such as vaping, Uber and Donald Trump in politics, that would not have really been topics before 2012, the last year she did the show before Dave FM went away.

Davis herself, who now hosts "Atlanta Eats" on NewsRadio 106.7, offers concert tips on 90.1/WABE-FM weekly and picks up talent for Adult Swim online, offered up her own ideas related to the craziness at the Trump White House and Anthony Scaramucci's brief tenure as communications director on social media.

In an interview, Davis said this isn't her first themed Spotify list but her first one in awhile. "There has been so much craziness in 2017," Davis said. "It's like, 'Oh my God. It's a field day!' This one especially when I saw Dave Itzkoff of the New York Times, he mentioned 'Movin' Out (Anthony's Song]' and it clicked."
