Notes: I think by this time I had purchased Long Misty Days and In City Dreams (by Robin Trower), judging from the opening track to this show. I spent a lot of time this year lying on my uber-comfortable couch in my dorm room, and when my roommate was not around, in the dark with some music on. Sometimes I would doze off, and in a misty half-sleep haze, certain songs would take on very personal meanings for me. I was listening to the song Somebody Calling one of those times, and I had the perception that it was just the most grooviest song I had ever heard, like in a funky but very cool sort of way. So the song quickly made it onto my radio show.

The previous summer I had been introduced to the brilliant movie School of Rock. My friend had spotted it in a store and expressed an interest. I had heard about it and was a bit doubtful, since it was supposed to be about kids forming a rock band. Naturally, I thought it would be childish and pretty stupid. Well, my friend decided he'd buy it, and that I'd have to at least give it a try. Turns out, I loved it! The movie was genius! It's one of my favorite movies to this day. Anyway, I finally got around to playing some songs from the movie on my radio show. Early on is the killer track School of Rock, and finishing the show is (ironically) the awesome song that opens the movie. For the longest time, I had the idea of doing a whole show dedicated to the School of Rock, and I even took the time to cut audio files including hilarious and true-to-the-heart-of-rock dialogue from the movie, but I never did get around to it...

As for that block of Led Zeppelin, I have little idea why now, but I remember I just stuck in side 2 of their debut album, and just let it play to the end.
