***Program note: OK, folks, here's the deal. Next week is my 100th show (yay), and I'd like to enlist your help in compiling next week's theme. I've asked some family and friends to help provide song titles that fit this configuration: "______ in the ______." Some examples: Summer in the City by the Lovin' Spoonful, Stuck in the Middle with You by Stealers Wheel, Back in the High Life Again by Steve Winwood...If you've listened to my show in the past (and if you're reading this blog, I imagine you have), you know that almost anything goes on my show, so lots of different musical genres are represented, from pop, rock, jazz, R&B, world music, country, be creative and brainstorm some titles for me, and I'll try to fit at least one of your choices into next week's show. Email me your choices (and let me know which of those you might prefer, if you like) by this coming Saturday to I've already received some great suggestions; add yours to the mix! --Marc
