The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit/Nighttime Maneuvers presents:

Hey Listeners,

So I am still coming down from a big Richmond Folk Festival weekend. As I was preparing for this week’s show it occurred to me that it is roughly the 15-year anniversary of my show. I really wanted a time slot, but when I finally got one I had no idea I’d settle in for the long haul. I love WRIR and being on the air and while I might not make it another 15 years, I plan on staying as long as they’ll have me.

To celebrate the occasion I’ve turned to a list for inspiration as I have been known to do over the years. During the last month about 10 people have asked me if I had been listening to Andrew Hickey’s podcast, A History of Rock Music in 500 Songs – 1938-1999. Anyway I hadn’t listened, but now I have begun. Each podcast episode is devoted to one of the songs. To date Hickey has aired 168 episodes. I have a long way to go to catch up, but I am going to have a blast doing so. What an ambitious and fascinating project.

And what fodder for tonight’s show. I hope to squeeze in 30 songs. We’ll start with the tunes featured in the first 11 episodes and then jump all over the place. Enjoy and keep it tuned here.
