Cheap Trick “On the Radio”
from Heaven Tonight (Epic www.epicrecords.com 1978) —I remember the day I was shopping in Grandpa Pigeon's, and I bought this album and This Year's Model by Elvis Costello, both for like $5 each. That was a great day.
John Hiatt “Movin' On”
from The Open Road (New West 2010) —This record didn't hit me as hard when it came out, but this song about the ways the past informs our lives - well, it's pretty sweet.
from The EMI Years (EMI 1997) —A lovely song from one of Brazil's most creative musicians.
Bruce Springsteen “Wrecking Ball” (Columbia 2012) N —I apologize for the commercial - that was not supposed to be there. The song is great, though.
Jay Gaunt “Midnight Rider”
from Harmonicopia (JPG 2010) —I forget how young this kid was when he recorded this, but it's way too young to play harp this well.
Iggy Pop “Nightclubbing”
from The Idiot (RCA Records Label 1977) —Sometimes I'm really proud of a segue between songs. This one worked even better than I thought it would.
Dion “Tank Full of Blues” (Blue Horizon 2012) N —Dion keeps making great records.
Chuck Prophet “White Night, Big City”
from Temple Beautiful (Yep Roc 2012) N —Since I heard both Roy Kasten & John Wendland play it this week, I figured we'd go for heavy rotation with this song.
