3 Chords & the Truth: Between 88 and 108
I became fascinated by radio as a kid, growing up to the sounds of Top-40 radio and those wonderful disc jockeys who kept me plied in top tunes and made my imagination take flight.
The deal was sealed, as it were, in my teen years (just before, actually) with the sounds of FM radio -- back when you were likely to hear anything on that stretch of crystal-clear ether, and usually did. These were the days when progressive and album-oriented rock lived somewhere between 88 and 108 megahertz, and whole vistas of sound were there for young ears to explore.
Almost 40 years later, I remember. This, largely, is what 3 Chords & the Truth is all about. And this is overwhelmingly what radio today sadly has forgotten.
THIS WEEK'S episode of the Big Show is yet another one where you are liable to hear any damn thing. Or at least any damn thing that's any good.
In other words, it's just like the FM stations I remember and perhaps, if you are of a certain age, you remember, too.
Two words for this edition of 3 Chords & the Truth: Vanilla Fudge.
That is all.
Enjoy the wonderful weirdness.
It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
