This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio # 936

Tired. Hot. Radio. COOL! We came in with no plan; the rest took care of itself anyway. Oh, and a big ol’ set o’ salutations to This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio, Volume 4, which is one year old this week. If we never do anything else, Dana and I can look back on that CD with justifiable pride and wonder. Happy Birthday, TIRnRR # 4! This is what rock ‘n’ roll radio sounded like on a Sunday night in Syracuse this week.
