At least once a year, I like to use my “Theme Attic” show, Wednesday mornings from 10AM-12PM EDT with Phil Maq, to play music associated with vacations I’ve taken or places I’ve visited.
I started out making cassette mix tapes, moved on to CDs, and now take what amounts to hundreds of albums of music. It is difficult, after a lifetime of doing this, to separate emotions felt at a beautiful location from the emotions felt from listening to a song.
So many memories!
So many road trips!
So much music!
Fifty years ago, when I was a wee lad, most of my family went on an incredibly long trip. My mother chose to stay home. But the rest of us–my dad, a brother, and a sister went on a sojourn that went down to Houston, over to Mobile, Alabama, and then up the east coast to Connecticut.
The car of choice was a 1967 Chevy Caprice. No air conditioning!
I intend to spend some time recalling some of that trip, as well as others, with the music that I play.
Songs by artists on the show will include RB Stone, Poco, The Hackwells, The Donkeys, Morgan Treni & The Landscapes with Angela Perley & The Howlin’ Moons, Eric Bannan’s Music Page, ELVIS PRESLEY, Nick Waterhouse, Stonewall Jackson, Eagles, I Don’t Trust Robots, The Beatles, Sarah McQuaid, Nanci Griffith with Emmylou Harris, The Euclids, Merle Haggard, John Denver, The Monkees, and more!!!
