Notes: You can see that, this semester, I got a reasonable slot on Tuesday evening, but this time, instead of the later 8-10 slot I was used to, I got an earlier 6-8 slot - basically the dinner slot. I was a little concerned that a lot of people would be out to dinner during that time and thus wouldn't be able to catch the show, but on the other hand, I thought maybe people would listen to the show while they ate dinner, during their casual break from studying. Who knows. At any rate, this semester marked my renewed interest in the show, and I spent the majority of the semester planning for my groundbreaking Roots of Led Zeppelin special, which I'll explain more about later.
The idea behind this show was to try to ease the depression of winter by playing a bunch of songs that recall the summer. I think it worked alright.
I remember going on air and mentioning how I didn't particularly like Bruce Springsteen, but I did like the songs Summer of '69 and Spirit in the Night. You see, at the time, I was under the impression that Summer of '69 was a Springsteen song, but somebody IMed me at the station and informed me that it was in fact a Bryan Adams song, and I said that must be why I like it then (because it's not even Bruce Springsteen, who I don't paticularly like).
The very first time I ever heard the Stones' Can't You Hear Me Knockin' was when I saw the movie Blow for the first time (great movie by the way) - during the intro. That's just such an awesome scene, and such a kick-ass song, that it really burned into my memory, and I've really loved that song ever since.
