Notes: See Part I for more information about this special. Not having nearly finished in the first two weeks, I had to squeeze what I had left of the Roots of Led Zeppelin special into my final show of the semester. I opened with another tune Zep liked to toss into their live jams, and then continued through Houses of the Holy, Physical Graffiti, finishing up with Presence (I didn't have anything major to say about any of the songs on Zep's last real album, In Through The Out Door). So then I finished the rest of the show with some conventional tracks.

I was in a bit of a summer mood (understandably) by the end of this show, and more specifically a summer concert mood. The only big concert I was expecting to see the following summer at that point was a Tom Petty concert, so I played a live Petty track. Unfortunately, though it's one of my favorite Petty songs, it was just about the only popular Petty song that he didn't play at the concert. Then I did a couple Dylan covers that I think I had been holding onto, waiting for the right time to play together. Frankenstein was a great live piece, with Edgar Winter but before he split from his brother Johnny's band. The obvious summer concert to think about is Woodstock, so I finished with a live track (titled Summertime, no less) actually from Woodstock, and then a final song that was used in the Woodstock movie, Long Time Gone, the perfect sentiment to end a semester of radio on...
