I have an old Sirius XM receiver that records. So I program it to spend half the weekend recording programs to play during the week while I work. The programs include 4 oldies countdowns -- one each from a week in the '60s, '70s, '80s, and '90s.
Right now, I'm listening to a countdown from this week in 1994. I don't remember "Wild Night" sounding so good.
Oh, I used to love that song! Pretty sure I bought the cassingle. Plus, it introduced me to Me'Shell Ndegeocello.

I saw her on a BART train once, canoodling with her girlfriend!
She's awesome. She was the featured artist at a jazz thing I went to a few years ago. Of course, my favorite song of hers has always been "If That's Your Boyfriend"
I went to high school with her wife!

The Inauguration Playlist, should you need something to occupy your ears until the ceremony.
Jim Steinman, King of Bombast, has passed away. [link]
If you have a chance to see the musical Bat Out of Hell you 100% should.
Slate's Hit Parade podcast from Chris Molanphy is always a favorite of mine, and he did a recent episode on Steinman, which was outstanding.
