3 Chords & The Truth

the strangest things can set Randy to thinkin’ about making a mix. Certain kinds of barbecue sauce. Roadkill. The way the light catches the wrapper of his Twinkie.

Or, this time out, something DJ Chris In The Morning said on an early episode of Northern Exposure. Something about myths. Something about heroes. Something about a babe in a red dress.

  1. Quality!

  2. Using this mix as a roadmap. I just got back last might from a drive from South Lake Tahoe to Oakland. I listened to this mix for most of the way – perfect. It approximated the greatest radio station ever.

  3. oh yeah – The Christian Life is not on this mix – There is a Higher Power instead.

  4. aw thanks, that means a lot.. (and you’re right about me messing the tracks up too!)
