Okay, the holidays and corresponding work/stress load are over. Well, the work load is over. The stress remains. Ah well, of such is life.

Anyway, this first episode of the still relatively new year continues the theme of last year’s final show, namely songs culled from my old store’s playlist. How I miss that store. Geoffrey, come home!

No, your eyes do not deceive you. Second new episode in a week. Really. This one draws from songs I had on the in-store playlist of a (believe it or not) store where I was the assistant manager before the corporation folded earlier this year. And no, it wasn’t my fault.

First, my apologies for not having made a new show in several months. Life has been getting in the way. But, at least for this evening, I have armwrestled it into sufficient submission to get a new show made. It is dedicated to Daniel Amos (the band) and the genius that is Terry Scott Taylor (the person).

Making a brief detour from my usual alt fare to feature Petra this time through (I know, that should be for a DeGarmo and Key show). Love them or no, there is no denying that within the Christian music world — I’m leaving U2 out of the equation as they have never operated within CCM — no band has done as much to legitimize rock as a viable, church-acceptable format as Petra.

Jekyll And Hyde Petra
God Gave Rock And Roll To You Petra
Beat The System Petra
Not By Sight Petra
Without Him We Can Do Nothing Petra
Bema Seat Petra

Here’s the playlist for the latest episode (air date March 21, 2018). It’s a compilation piecing together, based on currently available information, the original (or at least intended original) running order for So Long Ago The Garden by Larry Norman. Source of said information is this image, recently posted on Facebook’s Larry Norman page:

And before you ask, yes I know that during the show I give the incorrect original release year for the album. It first came out in 1973, not 1974. Oops. I also apologize for my voiceovers being on the near-mumbled side of things. A bit run down when I recorded this. It’s about the music anyway.
