20. Rolling Stones - You Got The Silver (R)
21. Brewer & Shipley - One Toke Over The Line (R)

Next Tuesday 1/9 Larry Miller brings back the "FM underground" era, and I'll be back in two weeks on Tuesday 1/16 with a tribute to the life and music of Duane Allman and a scheduled interview with music writer Randy Poe, author of a new biography called "Skydog: The Duane Allman Story".

Thanks for listening,
