    I forgot how much I like classic rock and british invasion. My wife hates it but she was gone Saturday so I switched my pandora over and listened to zeppelin, black sabbath, stones, clapton, the who, ccr, hendrix, animals, stevie ray vaughn, even some beatles and beach boys.

    I especially love Sunshine of Your Love by clapton. That song just oozes chill vibes.

    One of things I loathe about commercial 'classic rock' stations is how much they overlook. I know people who're into that stuff, and they say they have a hard time finding new music. My God, there's so much out there that these stupid radio stations basically hide from us. A classic rock fan shouldn't have to hear the same song twice in a year. Take Fleetwood Mac as an example: I must have heard "Rhiannon", "Dreams" and "Go Your Own Way" 1,000,000 times over the years, but I think I was 30 years old before I heard "Tusk" for the first time.



    Psychedelia was a subgenre of '60s rock I fell in love with as a young'un. I'd listened to The Beatles from when I was 6 or so, but their later, wilder stuff freaked me out too much. Then, maybe when I was around 12, I heard "White Rabbit" and "Tales of Brave Ulysses" and those really grabbed me by the [shirt]. I managed to discover Jethro Tull on my own, but it wasn't until I started hanging out with other music nerds in high school that I heard King Crimson.



    And Southern Rock - the other powerful arm of Classic Rock, alongside British Invasion - gets short shrift, too. Do we really need to hear "Sweet Home, Alabama" again? 'Obscure' Southern Rock (Southerners are no doubt saying "the f you mean, 'obscure'? you been livin' under a rock?" - well, yes, thanks to the Classic Rock stations up here in the frozen North):

    1 of my friends has started presenting a show on local radio and tries to play little known music (although it can be by well-known stars, just not those songs of theirs that you hear again and again).
    Hes taking requests and I was thinking of

    Same here. I got a crystal set radio when I was 5 years old. I used to listen to it until I went to sleep, and then again after midnight for a couple of hours when I woke up.
    I developed insomnia then and from which I still haven't recovered. It's not because I can't sleep, I'd just rather not. :)
    Your fine list missed out a band where some of the "greats" cut their teeth. And John Mayall's finishing school for many great musicians!

    Trying to limit this one to just a couple of listenings each year to preserve the magic.

    All hail Mark K!
