Episode 172 – Pain in the Asteroid


Thanks for tuning in, everyone! For your consideration, we present Part Two of our “Places I Remember” shows, a supplementary volume where we hereby include songs that were left out the first time around, like Riverside by the Beat Farmers (by request from my cousin Biddy), as well as Mississippi Queen by Mountain (also by request, this time from Maneco). In “Pain In the Asteroid”, so named because there was recent news about an asteroid heading our way, we once again play songs where a destination is in the title. Because ZZ Top and the Doobie Brothers did recent concerts in Vancouver, we happily bring you ZZ and Doob songs where locations are their primary focus. “I Left My Heart In San Francisco”!
