  2. William Emerson says:

    I’d like to hear side one of Let’s Dance by David Bowie.

  3. mike agan says:

    I’ll go with The Who Quadrophenia, Laura Duncan can pick the side. ~peace~

  4. Tony Gagliano says:

    How about Fleetwood Mac’s “Mystery to Me” album? Side one, please.

  5. Elaine says:

    I’d like to incorporate more women in the “classic” album side spins next Saturday. When one thinks of the classics it is male dominated, Beatles, Stones, Pink Floyd, the Doors, Zeppelin, etc., all great and worthy choices but maybe we could try to find some classic album sides from women fronted bands – are the Pretenders old enough to be considered classic? If so, how about side 1 from “Learning to Crawl” Ann Wilson has some pipes on her and I think Heart would certainly fit into the classic category and side 1 from “Dreamboat Annie” would not sound out of place on your station for the occasion. Maybe some Jefferson Airplane thrown in so we can hear some Grace Slick. On the mellower side of things, either side of Carole King’s “Tapestry” would be great to hear early Saturday morning. Thanks for the consideration.

  6. Elaine says:

    Now that I have added my 2 cents worth re: women – here are some other requests .
    I would love to hear any Dire Straits album side but my preference would be from their less popular “Making Movies” album (either side). Supertramp, “Breakfast in America” (either side). Steely Dan, “Royal Scam” side 1 or “Aja” the whole album, Lol.

  7. Alan says:

  22. Andrew says:

    I’ll try to throw up a few suggestions I don’t remember from last year. Plus, it’s always nice to stray from the norm. Here’s what I’m feeling.

    1. Aretha Franklin – Soul ’69 side 1, or any Aretha for that matter, i.e. Never Loved a Man, Lady Soul

    2. Bob Dylan – Desire side 1, Freewheelin’, Nashville Skyline, and Blood on The Tracks are all great options.

    3. B.B. King or Buddy Guy – play any of theirs, possibly Live at Cook County Jail, Live at the Regal, or Damn Right I’ve Got The Blues

    4. Otis Redding – Otis Blue, Dictionary of Soul

    5. Johnny Cash – Live at San Quentin, or Folsom Prison
