Earlier this week when the hysteria over the current world health situation was starting to gain some steam I was listening to my vinyl copy of Paul Westerberg’s Mono/Stereo. As “Let The Bad Times Roll” was playing a little light bulb went off in my head. What better way to help us get through these turbulent times than an entire episode loosely devoted to this crisis?
Most songs were pretty obvious, especially once the public (or at least the smart ones) decided that not leaving the house was a pretty wise move. Songs about boredom. Songs about “staying in”. Other tracks about various medical ills and medication. Maybe a few songs aren’t quite so clear to those who don’t have my weird mindset but they still work as great songs. I hope that no matter what happens in the near future this little rock and roll radio show gives you some joy.
After listening, please go purchase those tracks you enjoy!
