The program will feature many selections with
an interesting connection: miles and units of
Bob Blackman measurement.
“I’ve been playing around with a bunch of songs that have ‘miles’ in the title,” Blackman explains.
“There are lots of them, from Grandpa Jones’ Eight More Miles to Louisville to Peter, Paul and Mary’s
classic 500 Miles.
And, from that idea Blackman expanded his song list to include others with units of measurement,
from dollars and cents to pounds and points. “It’s a goofy way to link a bunch of songs,” he admits.
“But I figured it was appropriate since we’ll be asking WKAR’s listeners to measure what the station
means to them, and to translate that value into a pledge of support. So I hope these songs will
provide some inspiration as well as some fun.”
