my first experience was Vin's Scelsa's Closet late on a November 1968 night as Dylan's Mighty Quinn played hauntingly through my bedroom radio, static and all.
These days it takes me 5 hours to listen to your program by the time I replay 1/2 of your masterpieces and compelling commentary.

@Bob Brainen: You got me, as always! Beach Boys reunion album wasn't bad (if a little heavy on the AutoTune), but The Monkees' Good Times was rather superb, wasn't it? Much credit should go to the late and extremely lamented Adam Schlesinger's production.

Re: Forgotten Dreams, had to google a little but this must be how I know It:
"Forgotten Dreams" was for many years in the 1970s the closing theme of Friday editions of New York station WABC-TV's Eyewitness News (1968).

The folks who don't seem to be able to 'hear' Steely Dan seem to be legion, but I just don't get it. This stuff is genius. Is it just because they don't get jazz, or what? Mystifying.

The only Steely Dan I've heard is piped into the healthfood stores everywhere and margarita bars in Santa Barbara. It's more of a bad assiciation to a time and place that makes me cringe than the actual music.

There was a 48 Hours Segment back in the 1990s about a small German American community in Wisconsin whose favorite station was all Polka, but because it wasn’t drawing enough revenue, the station changed formats.
