Last minute theme inspired show. It may have been my last show in the beloved old studios before we switchover to our new studios so although not very original I chose songs about radio or where radio is mentioned in the songs. Radio audience was encouraged to call in and make requests and I would like to thank some of those listeners , Scott who was working very hard in the Rockaways wanted to hear Jimi Hendrix doing Radio One. I must apologise Scott could not honor that rquest very much to my own disappointment. Thank you to Laverne who wanted to hear the Doors , York requested Steely Dan , Jack in coram for Lou Reed , Tim in Kings Park requested ZZ Top and the one and only Capt.Phil for two great songs from Spiraling and Supersister. I also want to thank singer , songwriter , musician Dave Christian for calling and chatting about his new band The Dave Christian Project which features himself on Guitar/Vocals , Thomas Karcher on Bass , Tony Campo on Keys and Raymond Houck on drums/percussion.
