Hell's Kitchen Radio #501: I Think It's Gonna Rain
New year, new, show, new chance to make this even better for you. Have you ever thought about time travel? What do you think about? Where would you go? Why? Who would you want to see? Is this a kill Hitler kind of thing, or more of a see your favorite band before they made it big?

Maybe you just want to see some relatives in their prime? Holiday dinner with the folks? I haven't had dinner with my folks since May of 1984, before they separated when I was 13, two weeks after my very embarrassing bar mitzvah. It's possible we all dined together once or twice following then, but I don't recall. I'm not sad about it. I grew up living with my dad through high school, and it was really quite fabulous. I had no leash. San Francisco in the 80s was a lot of fun when you're a teen with no leash. Thanks dad.

My dad, Harvey Rosenberg, passed away last week at the age of 81, from Parkinson's Disease. He was such a great guy. Monday, January 9th, I'm going to host a two hour tribute to the man who brought music into my life. I wouldn't be who I am today without my father. I'll tell you all about him on Monday night. Tune in, it'll be worth it.

There was lots of rain this week so there's a lot of rain song mixed in tonight, along with a bunch of my faves from 2022. I have a lot of anniversary and remaster releases I threw in as well.

Enjoy and please share.
