Podcast - Episode 3: early influences

This is pretty self-indulgent, but what the hell. There's a first time for everything in the blogging world. Here's a podcast of music I was aware of before I started playing the drums- mostly they're things my brothers and sister were listening to a lot, around 1971-74, including Frank Zappa, The Who, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, and some other fun things. I have to say that music kicked ass in the early '70's.

I'm sparing you some of the more egregious things like Smoke on the Water (Deep Purple) and Joy to the World (Three Dog Night), and Candy Man (Sammy Davis, Jr.) but they should really be in there as well. Definitely some other TV theme songs, too- like Match Game, Mod Squad, Mission Impossible, Six Million Dollar Man...
