Last night WFNX Radio 101.7 FM debuted a new local music show, dubbed "Boston Accents," in a fancy new early time slot that doesn't interfere with "Mad Men." But if you were caught up in the Yanks-Sox game last night -- or busy in Newton saying goodbye to a friend who's moving to California -- here's a recap of the show's first playlist. Tune in to "Boston Accents" every Sunday night from 8 to 10 p.m. at 101.7 on the FM dial or streaming live at wfnx.com. Wicked pissa, khed.
