Notes: Boy, this is still one of my favorite themes. I always wanted to do a theme where the relationship between songs would be in their titles. I tried thinking of songs with colors in their titles, and songs with people's names, but I had the most success finding songs with some form of fire (or flame or burning or hot) in their title. So I called it the Classic Rock Bonfire! I think it's genius! And there's a lot of good songs here, too! I actually hadn't thought of Fire And Rain by James Taylor (even though I had seen James Taylor in concert the previous summer), but a caller requested it, and I put it on.

At this time, the campus band My Shady Uncle Thomas was still in its incubatory stages, but Paul and Dro were forming the foundations, and the two of them, friends of Rob and his Rock Block, which was the radio show on just before mine, would sometimes come on the air and perform a few songs live at the end of Rob's show. They were playing mostly Comfortably Numb (Pink Floyd), Tangerine (Led Zeppelin), Waste (Phish), and Better Man (Pearl Jam) at the time, from what I remember. Anyway, on this particular night, it was time for my show, but the boys wanted to play one more song, so I told them I'd be happy to give them the air time. So they went out and practiced a little, then came in and played Better Man. I'm honored to have had them on my radio show.
