Hey Listeners,

We all owned that record or several records when we were younger that opened the doors to new musical adventures. Some of those records remain with us all of our lives. Others we grow out of. Some we’re embarrassed to admit we ever owned and loved. Anyway tonight we’re going to feature two of those records and some other assorted tracks that are the original recordings and artists that those “gateway” records turned me on to.
