Wax! Crackle! Pop! Show #35: New Emotions

Monday, August 18


Dear listeners, we’re at our midway point through August as summer’s exit beckons. Lots of mixed feelings as we march forward into fall, losing San Francisco’s (and the world’s) beloved Robin Williams earlier this week. Infamous Candlestick Park has now signed up for detonation, but not without an amazing concert there by Sir Paul McCartney first to bid adieu; almost 48 years to the day when The Beatles played their last public concert there. Hark! Fall is around the corner. The best time to be by the bay.
