Radio, radio, radio…

After a brief hiatus, Picks 3 made it’s triumphant return this morning at 8 am with listener Rich Campbell! Rich checked in with three solid picks, including a personal favorite of mine… As much as I love to rock, some of the moodier Wilco songs just blow me away.

Radio Cure – Wilco
My Radio – Stars
Another Radio Song – Okkervil River

“The theme is, of course, radio. I can remember getting my first radio when I was 6. I loved it. I learned to search the left end of the dial for the best music while in high school. Radio (and of course, good music) has been in many ways a diversion, a cure, a sanctuary when you were pulling an all nighter, driving across country to chase a woman, or going through tough times. There are many songs that cover this topic. ‘Radio Cure’ says it all in the title and YHF is one of my all time favorites. Okkervil River is just a great up and coming band that has really captured my imagination. My Radio says it in the lyrics, “All I want is my radio.” – Rich

Thanks again to Rich, and learn more about Pick 3!
