This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio # 922

It can be a busy life. One can find oneself juggling about a dozen different things, some important, some trivial, some nestled in the vast DMZ betwixt ‘n’ between. But stuff gets done, and the republic stands. And on Sunday night, we play records. Let the music free your soul. This is what rock ‘n’ roll radio sounded like on a Sunday night in Syracuse this week.

This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio with Dana & Carl, Sunday nights from 9 to Midnight Eastern, on the air in Syracuse on The Spark WSPJ-LP 103.3 and 93.7, and on the web at
