Glenn Miller - "In the Mood" - I have the entire collection, but this is the classic piece from his orchestra that best symbolizes the music from the WWII era. I can remember hearing this every morning on the AM radio in the kitchen (KLIV - "The Music of Your Life" in San Jose, Ca) as I ate my breakfast and got ready for school.
Garrison Keillor - not music, but if you haven't signed up for the "Lake Wobegon podcast" you don't know what you are missing. A Prairie Home Companion is one of my favorite radio shows and the highlight is the news from Lake Wobegon where "the women are strong, the men are good looking and all the children are above average."
Guns n' Roses - "Welcome to the Jungle" - so there are some things from college I cannot shake. actually I keep this song for waking up the house, pushing me that extra bit when running, or just keeping people on their toes who think they know me...
Gypsy Kings - "Bambaleo" - summertime, the back porch, and fuzz buzzes...did I mention it was almost time for peaches again?
Gene Autry - "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" - minimum playtime...one time per year...but classic
Quietly making noise,
