A typical Route 78 West show till the 10:55 mark. After that the fringe of imagination took over resulting in a pleasant rue of lesser known tracks followed by a not so typical run of Surf songs. Somewhere in the mix a sort of theme morphed toward a multi-edged slice of seldom played but influential songs. That can happen when a group of music heads with bags of LPs show up at the station on a Sunday morning.

*Hot tracks; Sam Hinton, Old Joe Clark and Mikis Theodorakis, La Course de Manuel.

Post show at a crowded Mountain Sun. Outta sight bluecheese burgers and great service! After a short jaunt to Yeti Arts & Crafts we all headed out and about.

Alela Diane plays the Hi-Dive on November 20th. See you next week.
