I can rock again!

Remember back in June I whining that I couldn't find a decent radio station to listen to?

The New Country 95.3 out of Hamilton switched formats last Friday is now playing all the greatest hits from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

The last country song they played was Garth Brooks', The Dance (I love that song!).

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end, the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance; I could have missed the pain
But I'd have had to miss the dance

I listened to it on the way to the grocery store today and again online this afternoon ... and I'm loving it!

Eagles, Chilliwack, Doug and the Slugs, Beatles, Nazareth, Platinum Blonde, Boney M, Tommy James, Madonna, War, etc.

A most excellent variety!

It's fascinating that you posted this on November 22...the 46th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination. Garth's video chose an interesting way to illustrate "The Dance."

I LOVE to watch the YouTube video of the writer of "The Dance" (Tony Arata) singing the song in a famous cafe in Nashville.

Garth Brooks "The Dance" The guy who wrote it, LIVE !!!

Tony tells anecdotes for a starts at 1:25.

This is part of a comment: "I like this guys singing of it better than the Garth Brooks version (which is too beautiful, but not so touching as this-- something about the timbre of this guys voice and guitar communicates the fragility of life's choices/chances).

I don't have a blog but if you'd like to reply, immichal AT yahoo is my email.

That's how I feel about the few Radio Stationd that play the great songs of the 1930's, 1940's and some of the 1950's...Music that soared and Lyrics one could actially understand...!
Isn't it great to have a radio stayion that lifts you up with music?

It's hard to find a good radio station - glad they switched one for you.

I always wonder why they change radio stations without notice. This is a good example, but I hate it when a radio station I like changes overnight without warning!
