I'm thinking maybe via, at the time, B103.7, since, on the good ol' morning newspaper route, by the time I was close to wrapping up, I would occasionally flip over there once I had gotten all the morning information I needed, first from WCBS in New York, then from future co-workers Tim Timberlake and John Harding on WRVA.
It was the last song that, when it grabbed me, it shook me like songs used to when I was a kid, having to, at least, record it off the radio, and then, later, go to the record store and get the 45. In fact, I did record it off the radio with my old 1990's era boom box (I wish I still had that contraption!), so I could listen to it as much as I wanted in the ol' blue minivan.
That, of course, meant the kids would hear it a lot, too, as this was during my third and final summer as the stay-at-home Dad. In fact, if I dig deep enough in my cassette library somewhere in this house, I should be able to find the time, a couple of years later, where I had Robbie and Rachel in one of our production rooms at Clear Channel. I recorded them singing along to the song.
Hmmm.....gotta get my hands on that one. :)
From a massive one-hit wonder, here's Citizen King, and a song that makes me think of The House The Withams Built (But Never Lived In) and Summer Parent/Kid Bowling League. Good times. :) :)
