Notes: I was still a big fan of my classic rock radio station back home, even though it was a corporate-station (even if it was privately-owned). But they used to do themed weekends on that station, and around this time they did what they called an Artist A To Z weekend, and I kinda borrowed that idea for my own show. Fortunate Son by CCR is out of order because it was actually called in as a request, I think by someone who didn't realize that I was playing artists alphabetically. Actually, I think this caller wanted me to play a version of Fortunate Son performed by Bob Seger, which I hadn't ever heard, and I couldn't find in the back. Did Bob Seger play that song? I'm still not sure if it was my mistake or the caller's. Ah well.

You can see that, with the exception of Oh Well which I played on a previous show, this was before I had really discovered the earlier version of Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green, of which I am a super-huge fan of now. I was still playing the Nicks/Buckingham version of the band at this time.

I don't remember if this was the night or not, but one night while I was playing an extended live Zeppelin jam (from a bootleg), I got a call from an older man who told me that he was listening to my show while driving through the vicinity, and he complemented me on playing the live Zeppelin, and told me how much he was enjoying it. He told me that he had had tickets to see Led Zeppelin in 1977, but the show was canceled as a result of the death of Robert Plant's son, and so he didn't get to see them. I thought that was a really cool call to get. Made me think I was doing *something* right with my show!
