Music is the best...

I remember listening to records on an old record player that was similar to this. The first records I remember owning were Beach Boys Endless Summer and Kiss Alive! I still have them, although they are probably totally worn out.

Well, now it's about 35 years later and my son listens to music on his own iPod. He gets to pick and choose the songs he wants to listen to (except for some Tenacious D songs - he's only 12). He's got Stevie Wonder, Simon & Garfunkel, Johnny Cash, The White Stripes, Led Zepplin, The Clash, The Ramones, AC/DC...

Because of his love of music, he's also been asked to help co-host a radio program on the local community radio station, KWMR this Sunday from 2:00-4:00. I'll be working, but will darn sure be listening. He gets to pick 5 songs to play and talk about. He's already picked them and burned them to a CD. Get ready for:

The Ramones - Blitzkrieg Bop
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Fortunate Son
The Clash - London Calling
John Lennon - Imagine
Led Zeppelin - Immigrant Song

(What's playing: No way! Kiss' Watching You from their Alive! album just came up on my iPod, which is playing every song at random - that's 9149 songs. How freaky is that? Guess I better go buy a lottery ticket.)
