local radio

While we were at Ragged Point we listened to the local Cambria radio station, Magic 103. In addition to finally getting the correct pronunciation of Cambria, we heard an amazing mix of music, and without commercial interruption in the evenings. In the course of one afternoon and evening, we heard:

  • the theme from Exodus
  • Midnight at the Oasis
  • modern, upbeat renderings of classical works
  • Day is Done by Peter, Paul and Mary
  • Amazing Grace
  • the Ella Fitzgerald original of A Tisket a Tasket
  • Sinatra’s Here’s to the Winners
  • the theme from Chariots of Fire
  • The Carpenters (ARGH!)
  • big band music
  • a jazz cover of Mr. Bojangles
  • Nat King Cole, Tenderly
  • a marvelous rendition of As Time Goes By (Our song!)

and a lot more

That’s my kind of radio. (Sadly, we haven’t experienced that kind of eclectic mix listening online after coming home.)
