Not dwelling on Five Songs too much this week, as I have a lot more I want to do before I pack up the Penske and take the big move back to Connecticut three days from now. But I did have a few songs kicking in my mind the past three weeks to go with the usual spontaneous clutter, so, in fine Five Songs tradition, this week’s list is more than five — try 15. And with 3,000 miles in front of me, I’m gonna need — and carry in the truck — a lot more than 15.
And chances are you’ll never see this assortment of people even mentioned in the same place again.
So here you go — last musical transmission from Fresno. See ya on the flipside, good buddy!
