Notes: I had been keeping track of a handful of songs that really seemed to define me as a person and my life, that I referred to as the songs on the "Soundtrack To My Life", and I got the idea to play those songs on my radio show. Here they are, from Lazy to Hey You (I've added a few more since then). It gave this show a considerably personal feel for me.

This was also the debut of the annual tradition of playing tracks from Jesus Christ Superstar on shows near Easter. I've been a fan of Jesus Christ Superstar for years, at least back to High School, maybe even earlier. I remember memorizing the entire score, because it was so good, and reciting lines, sometimes in my head, sometimes out loud, while walking home from school at times. I still like to listen to it and watch the movie (the 1970's version) around Easter time. The music of JCS had a very rock opera kind of feel, so I felt that it fit in very well with my radio show.
