I'll sit at home and play a song like Dear Mr. Fantasy by Traffic, and towards the end of that song, I will think of the next song I want to play. In this case, Season of The Witch by Al Kooper & Steven Stills. That then leads to Alone In The Grass, Poem 58, Had To Cry Today, and I just roll through songs I never get tired of listening to. Hence the playlist you see... enjoy. Cool Breeze

30 years ago the synths were tinny, the drum machines were mechanical, mullets seemed to make sense, and the music was so full of reverb it was hard to even hear. but i found an hour's worth of wonderful and historically significant music from 1984 to make your this week's show wonderful and historically significant.
this week's 1984 show features 2 songs that were banned (the bbc refused to play the erotic dance tune "relax," and a number of christians boycotted cindy lauper's ode to masturbation, "she bop"), john lennon released a new album 4 years after his death, and his son julian released one by seemingly channeling his father, we were warned of the chaos in bangkok, and don henley's [right] ultimate reminder that "all she wants to do is dance"....
against the metal, post glam glitter of the 80s, todd rundgren released his humanitarian, pre- apocolyptic, 1984 global masterpiece, "one world":
Politicians and dictators and the guys with the dough
They think they run the world but they just don't know
'Cause down here on the street we got it under control
From Berlin to San Francisco, from London to Tokyo.

Twenty-five songs and no commercial interruption at 2 PM Thursday. I have said many times that you will never hear song sequences like you will hear on my show. I have a trio consisting of The Blues Magoos, Twink, and Tommy Roe in hour one, and Humble Pie, The James Gang, and the Jefferson Airplane in hour two. You will hear songs like Let The Incense Drift, Inner Mystique, Time Is Standing Still, Sacred Harvest, A New Low In Getting High, Haze, John Lennon Is Tired, and Dawn of Majic. Pull up a chunk of rug, or settle into a bean bag chair, and catch the vibe of this trip. The G Man
