Routes and Branches Play List 10/29/11

This week's transition song (from Magical Mystery Tour) was Danny Barnes new version of the T-Rex classic "Bang A Gong". A song that I lost a "name that band" contest to a friend when I was 18. I had heard the song on the radio all the time but I never knew who the band was. That was my first lesson in music knowledge humility. I am reminded every day that there is always more to learn about both old and new musicians and their craft. I love it when someone turns me onto something I haven't heard before which is why I play so many new releases on my show.

Being the end of October and what many consider Halloween weekend, I had a show mostly made up of songs about devils, Spooks, Haunted Houses and of course a couple about Zombies. But, along with all the spooky fun the season brings for many, this week has also been a solemn one for me with the death of a close friend and former business partner. As Hank Williams said "I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive".
