  • Great Matt! glad you liked it. Suggestion duly noted! It is always a tough decision on what songs to fit into an hour-long edition. Never enough time. America by simon and garfunkel is a great tune and it was hard to leave it off. It was next song on the list. Truth.
    Keep listening there’s always more great music to share!

  • “American Girl” is my fav Tom Petty song…partially due to nostalgia from “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”.

  • Ha! yeah fourdoorsedan I feel the same way. Nostalgia def plays a part in my love for American girl. Petty is great tho, Ive been listening to them a lot lately. Some of the earlier stuff is great.
