Last week, Mike mentioned the FM station in San Fran that switched format from “Beautiful Music” to Rock… and that reminded me of this story:
Back in, oh, 1994, I was in San Francisco and I was brushing my teeth, staring out the window at a brick wall, and the radio station said something to the effect of “it’s Thursday, let’s play some punk” and they started playing Jim Carroll’s “These are the people who died” and I had never heard that song before and I just stood there, motionless, toothbrush in my mouth, listening to this amazing song on the radio that I had never heard before thinking “holy crap, I need to move here”.
I didn’t, of course. And it’s just as well.
My goodness, I haven’t thought about that in ages.
So… what are you listening to?
