Liner Notes

  • Christy is finally back! Christy has been busy with things and on vacation in Hawaii. School is back in session so she has also been doing a lot of 2nd grade homework.
  • Patreon subscriber and last week's guest co-host Mike Bietz is in studio observing.
  • Three listeners also made picks in today's show West Anthony, James Sandlin and Steve Howard.
  • Christy found this to be a challenging episode to pick for. She didn't want to bring the classics that everyone knows. She warns that this is going to be a lot of soft rock.
  • Pat tells Christy that Kyle is engaged again. Pat's waiting for the third time because "it's a charm."
  • Christy fires off first (in what may be the quickest pick ever at 0:06:30) with side one of Carol King's Tapestry. Tapestry was released in February 1971. The follow up album Music was released in December of that same year. Pat feels they could have let Tapestry breathe a little more because it is such a good album.
  • Pat's first pick is side two of Rod Stewart's Every Picture Tells a Story. Probably Rod's best album.
  • West Anthony starts off the listener picks with side one of The Smithereens' Especially for You
  • Christy picks a sentimental album that was given to her by her friend Bubby in middle school, side one of Talking Heads' Speaking in Tongues.
  • Apologies to Rush for Moving Pictures side one. It just missed Pat's list. He does pick a Detroit rocker: side one of Bob Seger's Stranger in Town.
  • Christy follows with side two of The B-52's self titled first album. Pat saw The B-52's at theUniversal Amphitheater in 1991 and The Pretenders opened.
  • Pat's next pick was side one of Billy Joel's Glass Houses. Pat saw Billy Joel in May this year in Dodger Stadium. Pilar got him tickets for his birthday.
  • Christy picks side three of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Elton John.
  • Pat quickly follows with an 80's era Elton John pick: side two of Too Low for Zero.
  • Listener James Sandlin picks someone that Pat has never heard of. The pick is side one of TV on the Radio's Dear Science.
  • Christy's last pick of the show, coming in at minute 53 of the show, is a "legit one": side one of Super Tramp's Breakfast in America.
  • Pat of course has more because he had trouble making up his mind. His next pick is side one of Eagle's Hotel California.
  • He follows it up with side two of Back in Black by AC/DC.
  • The last listener pick is from Steve Howard.he brings it with side one of Low-Life by New Order.
  • Bose is sponsoring the podcast. New cans for everyone in the studio. They are now all using the QuietComfort 35 headphones. Bose - Get Closer.
  • Pat's last pick is one of the classics everyone knows: side one of Damn the Torpedoes by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers!
