Greetings Citizens!


        As you know, today we experienced a 5.9 magnitude earthquake. Coming from San Francisco it's something that I've been through before but never during my 30 years living here in Philadelphia. At any rate, it gave me a good change to make a left turn and play earthquake related songs in an extended, spur of the moment thematic block. With your help I played:


 Shake it Up – The Cars

If The House is a Rockin' – Stevie Ray Vaughn

You Shook Me – AC/DC

You Shook Me – Led Zeppeln

Shake Me Down – Cage The Elephant

Shake, Rattle & Roll – Bill Haley & the Comets

Shakin' All Over – The Who

Shakin' – Eddie Money

Shakedown Street – Grateful Dead


        Thank you for your help today and for all your great song suggestions! Fortunately, nobody was hurt by the earthquake and we were able to make light of this event by playing a bunch of songs. Because, if you think about it, there is a rock song that fits any situation!

    This is why I love living in Philly and listening to WMMR. I was able to get information on The Great Shake of 2011 from Pierre and Jason F. Forget Schwartz's "Trust the bowtie". Turn here and "Trust the Tie-Dye" instead!
