THIS WEEK'S LISTENER REQUEST
There are a certain number of people listening who will recall that in the mid 90’s, pop radio had an invasion of sorts. Songs from angry women. And not only angry, but screechy! I was not a fan and it was at that time that my older sister suggested I check out the local country station from New York. Well, I did and I liked it and then suddenly, the station changed format. So, something new and fun was quickly gone. That is, until my sister went on a foreign student study to Australia and began making and mailing me CD’s of the country songs she liked over there. Now eventually, the New York/Northern New Jersey market would become re-country-fied with New York’s ‘Nash’ 94-7. But it was slim pickins for us country fans in the area for a long time and I will always be thankful to my sister, Laurie for sending me those CD’s from the other side of the globe. Kind of ironic. Maybe you can play the first song on the first CD Laurie made for me back in 1996 by Leann Rimes. Thanks.
