|Notes:||Tonight's show may have
had you worried that Route 78 West was changing to a talk format resembling
NPR's "All Things Considered". That is not the case. The third
trak, Holiday for Love, set the tone for a show of random sets with listener
calls for more honky tonk. Loki reined supreme setting the political tone
while Uncle Jeff stuck to more historical rhetoric and choreographed the
background "frequency" sound bites.
Pete Seeger's song, "Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream", bent the show to the political side. 60's standbys including "The Times They Are A Changing" and "For What It's Worth" combined with pointed civil rights lyrics by Dylan in "Ballad of Hollis Brown" sent a strong message of support for Martin Luther King's legacy.
The anniversary of Marconi's trans Atlantic radio broadcast incited the songs, "Radio Radio" and "You Turn Me On I'm A Radio" which Loki dedicated to Alicia.
Possibilities of war with Iraq were rebutted with Rotation Blues and Creedence Clearwater's Effigy, done with energy and power by Uncle Tupelo.
Nowhere else on the dial can "Freeform Radio" like this be heard. Believe it or not some of these signals are moving out across space. It's true cause Star Trek did an episode about it.
Post show at Tom's Tavern... where they don't mind if you order half a martini.
