Episode190 / The Return of 8 Track Flashbacks


An encore presentation, as Ed McMahon used to say on the Tonight Show. We’re taking a brief break, so for this week we bring you a repeat episode from about 3 or 4 years ago, now upgraded and edited for sound reasons. However, as some of you may not have heard this show the first time around, here it is for your enjoyment in new and improved sonic splendor!

We return to the 70s for more fractured tunes I used to listen to on my trusty eight-track tape player, and tonight we’ve got some great old rockers for you in the “My Misguided Youth” series. A line in Hard Stuff’s “Monster In Paradise” comes to mind: “The squirrel-faced lady on the high tight wire, look out baby it’s the devil’s fire”. Jeez, they just don’t write songs like that any more, do they? Also included near the end of the show is Wizzard’s weird, wild & wonderful tribute to Led Zeppelin, “You Got the Jump on Me”. And yes, this must be a rockin’ show because there are TWO, count ‘em, TWO versions of Johnny B. Goode here. Pedal to the metal!
