One more Thursday, one more Playlist

I think this is something around show #75.  And it’s still damn fun.  We had a good time tonight spinning some CDs, some vinyl.  Something old, something new.  Hey, in case you didn’t know it, today is Homer Joy’s birthday.  Homer wrote and performed some classic tunes.  He’s probably best known for writing a little tune called “Streets of Bakersfield.”  We talked with Homer almost three years ago – dang, has it been three years already?  The excerpt from that show with Homer is available to listen at the following link:  Homer Joy Interview.  Happy Birthday, Homer.  Hope you had a great time.

Here’s some youtube clips and the playlist from tonight to keep you occupied for the next 20 minutes or so.
