srv Playlist: Saturday Morning Flashback 11/13/10Saturday Morning FlashbackYikes, it’s been 20 years already! [lastfm]Stevie Ray Vaughan[/lastfm] died, Nelson Mandella was released from prison, “Seinfeld” debuted, and [lastfm]Midnight Oil[/lastfm]’s Blue Sky Mining topped the XRT Listener Poll. The songs that forced me to crank up the studio monitors this morning included “Spin” by [lastfm]Wire Train[/lastfm], “I Don’t Know Why I Love You” by [lastfm]The House of Love[/lastfm], [lastfm]Los Lobos[/lastfm]’ “I Can’t Understand”, and I’ve always been a sucker for the late [lastfm]Michael Hutchence[/lastfm]’s playful vocals and Charlie Musselwhite’s harp workout on “Suicide Blonde”. Hope you can join me next week for 1984!

    I was visiting Chicago this past week, on business, (from Derroit), found your station, and never changed it! Great radio!! I listened till I lost you about Benton Harbor coming home! Keep up the great work. I loved the variety on the flashback show this morning…Stevie Ray, Buckwheat, John Hiatt! Absolutely a music lovers dream!

    I went to the Saturday night show at Alpine to see S.R.V. and he BLEW me away!!! My ex girlfriend actually talked me out of going back the next night! Thank goodness I was fortunate enough to see him once. I will never choose a woman over my music again!!!
