Time marches on...

After an incredible 44-year career, Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame inductee Steven Seaweed retired from full-time broadcasting last week. This was the final song he played, and it's been stuck in my head ever since.



It seems somehow appropriate to play on this Independence Day.

30-Day Song Challenge #26: A song that makes you want to fall in love

I'm not sure if this one makes me want to fall in love, or just fall in bed...

30-Day Song Challenge #25: A song you like by an artist no longer living

I think I knew what this had to be before anything else on the list.



Almost twenty years later, and this video still mesmerizes me.

30-Day Song Challenge #20: A song that has many meanings to you

Bear with me on this one...



  • It's one hell of a party song.
  • I associate it (still) with watching World Series of Poker coverage on cable.
  • The first year I drove to Burning Man on my own, it was the last song I heard on terrestrial radio before I lost signal heading into Gerlach.

I was struggling with what to choose here...and then I picked the icon for this post and the decision was obvious.

30-Day Song Challenge #13: A song you like from the '70s

I just looked at Billboard's Hot 100 lists from 1970-1979, and boy, can you ever tell I grew up listening to AM radio, because I recognized almost all of them. But here's another one of the songs from the roadtrip mix I'll never be able to put together. The performance is from '82, but the song was originally released in '77, so it totally counts.

30-Day Song Challenge #12: A song from your preteen years

Depending upon how you define "preteen," I could have hit 12 and 13 with the same tune, but I opted to go a different route.

Not only do I not get tired of it, I once listened to it on repeat for two solid hours...

30-Day Song Challenge #8: A song about drugs or alcohol

I picked this one because I loved the artist's editorial commentary on his drawing style...and then it turned out to be a two-fer on the challenge topic!
