QOTD

Question of the Day: The House that Jack Built

by Corny O'Connell

I've just moved into a new home and I'm still unpacking boxes and arranging furniture. It's gotten me to thinking of songs about the different rooms that make up a home. Let's see if together we can build a house of songs. We'll need a kitchen, bedroom, bath and any other spaces that make up a home. Share your songs below and we'll break ground after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Cassandra Wilson "Come On In My Kitchen"

Lyle Lovett "This Old Porch"

The Beach Boys "In My Room"

Question of the Day: Unlucky in Song

It's Friday the 13th, considered unlucky by those who are superstitious. Whether you believe in luck or not, it shows up in many a lyric. Share your favorite songs that mention luck, good or bad, and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Alison Krauss & Union Station "The Lucky One"

Freedy Johnston "The Lucky One"

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers "Even the Losers"

Question of the Day: Call Me

by Corny O'Connell

It's the anniversary of the first telephone call. On this date in 1876 Alexander Graham Bell spoke through his new invention to his assistant saying, "Mr. Watson, come here, I want to see you." Since then phones and calls have popped up in countless songs. Share some of your favorites and we'll spin a set after 9am.

This weekend we lose an hour of sleep to daylight saving time. Be sure to set your clocks ahead an hour when you go to bed tomorrow night. As a consolation, I'll play your favorite songs about clocks or that feature the sound of clocks ticking. Share them below and we'll schedule that for after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Chuck Berry "Reelin' and Rockin'"

The Chambers Brothers "Time Has Come Today"
