1975 + 39

I listened a bit to the KCRW app stream last evening (8.12.2014 Morning Becomes Eclectic Show) when, out of the blue “Someone Saved My Life Tonight” jolted my ears.

I enjoy KCRW’s app and music streams, tolerating their occasional lapses into a Sting/Police song. That said, I am not much of an oldies fan, but in this case, the 1975 song whisked me back in time and brought a smile to my face.

I recalled the days of the (expensive) album. Some were masterpieces, such as Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, the Who’s Quadrophenia and Elton John’s Goodbye Yellow Brick road among many others.

So, props to Jason Bentley and his KCRW crew for a subtle (and rare) plug.
