30yrs ago during the week of December 4th, 1988 country singer Roy Orbison and my dad both suffered massive heart attacks. The world lost Roy, my dad survived but lost 85% of his heart muscle. The two outcomes amazed me! My perception of the events and what I learned over the years, opened my eyes and changed my life.
Falling is hardly a great experience. Unlike most adults, I recall taking many a “dives” to the concrete and laughing about it! Kids on the other hand! Try and stop them from laughing if they see you fall.
I feel like I am a teenager listening to the radio at night. Last night I sat outside in Red Rock Canyon (near Las Vegas) and listened to Zoom by the Drifters on Back in the Dave. The stars were bright, the spring wind was warm, and the music brought me back to the 70s when I danced while rocking my babies to sleep. I have been going backwards listening to this podcast. I understand Dave’s emotions and thoughts on death. I was widowed over 10 years ago, and I have always thought my husband’s death was his choice. No one has ever said death is a choice. Thanks Dave I am right here with you listening away.
If you grew up in the 70’s listening to AM radio and now have ‘grown up’ with more perspective on life, check this podcast out. Check out the ‘April 11th 1976’ episode and you’ll be taken for an emotional ride you’ll be glad you took. Can’t wait to hear all the other episodes!
This podcast is a must for music & culture fans from Baby Boomer to GenX & beyond. All people, all backgrounds, all races can come together listening to Dave reminisce. Love it.
Found Dave’s podcast from an recommendation of top podcasts in the latest AARP magazine. Thanks, Dave, for your thoughtful and wise insight AND for taking me along the walks down Memory Lane!
I absolutely love your podcast !
It takes me back to the greatest time of my childhood, especially 1977
I love your podcast, the songs, and the memories you share. Feels like listening to a friend reminisce 🙂
