Once again The Eagle undertakes its yearly adventure into alphabetized classic rock with our 'Essential Classic Rock A to Z.' From a DJ's point of view, it's a heckuva lot of fun. Perhaps you've realized that there is no new classic rock. Oh sure, once in a while a cool new live version of something comes out, but mostly, new music is one thing, and classic rock is another. And as such, we have people who work very hard at the day to day details, like making sure this song doesn't come up next to that song too often. Computers help, but in the end, we all are very concerned with the music. When we do the the yearly A to Z the songs fall only alphabetically, so an old folk-rock song by The Byrds might be next to an 80s song of mostly synthesizers. A political song next to an aching love song, so that your emotions are jerked first this way and then that way. For us, it's a wild ride, and we enjoy taking that ride with you. Once a year. I hope you enjoy the next few days. I know I will! -Jobe
