Show #186 – We Have The Knack

We have the knack.  The knack for really mixing it up and throwing folks for a loop.  And I only mention that because we played The Knack’s My Sharona tonight because it reached the #1 position on this day in 1979 and it wasn’t until many weeks later that a band named Led Zeppelin knocked them off the #1 pedestal.  Yeah, The Knack made some darn good pop/rock tunes.

We also played some new music from some folks out of Bakersfield.  Lonely Avenue is a new band out of B-Town who recorded in our pal Brian Boozer’s Aum Studios.  Brian also played drums on the album.  It’s a good album.  A damn good album.  Give it a listen.

And we played a couple of tracks from John Doe/X because John will join us in the studio on our next show September 8.  Just saying you might want to clear your calendar.
