Episode 5 - C.W. McCall and His Music
This episode features the story of not one song, but the creation of a character that brought an ad executive in his late 40's out of his office and into the recording studio, where he and his band would go gold in 1976. Listen for the whole story, it's quite a tale!

Episode 3 "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald"
In this episode, I examine one of my lifelong favorites. Gordon Lightfoot's "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" is by far one of his most famous songs, and has forever immortalized the "Fitz", her men, and the day she was lost. So, in honor of them and the anniversary of the tragedy please listen and enjoy Episode 3!
