The Drive's "A to Z"

This morning, the Drive, WDRV FM in Chicago kicked off their semiannual "A to Z" week+ long airing of some 2,000+ songs in alphabetical order.  Every time they do it, they add and drop songs, so it is not the same list each time.

Right now, Steve Downs is playing them, then Bob Stroud at 10 AM.  Because of this, there will be no Ten at Ten until at least Nov. 12th.

Since I got up this morning, they played these songs:

ADDICTED TO LOVE--  Robert Palmer
AFRICA--  Toto
AFTER MIDNIGHT--  Eric Clapton
AFTER THE GOLD RUSH--  Neil Young--
AGAINST THE WIND--  Bob Seger
AH LEAH--  Donnie Iris

AIN'T NO SUNSHINE--  Bill Withers
AIN'T TALKIN' 'BOUT LOVE--  Van Halen
AIN'T THAT A SHAME--  Cheap Trick
AIN'T TOO PROUD TO BEG--  Temptations
AIN'T WASTIN' TIME NO MORE--  Allman Brothers

AJA--  Steely Dan
ALABAMA GETAWAY--  Grateful Dead
ALABAMA SONG (WHISKY BAR)--  Doors
ALISON--  Elvis Costello
ALIVE--  Pearl Jam
ALIVE AND KICKING--  Simple Minds

ALL ALONG THE WATCH TOWER--  Jimi Hendrix--  Of interest Steve Downs said both of these songs were recorded on the same night at the same recording studio, and Dave Mason was on both of them.  He played on the Jimi Hendrix version and then walked to the room where he was recording and did it as well.  I didn't know that.
ALL ALONG THE WATCH TOWER--  Dave Mason
ALL APOLOGIES--  Nirvana
ALL DAY AND ALL OF THE NIGHT--  Kinks
ALL DOWN THE LINE--  Rolling Stones
ALL I EVER WANTED--  Santana

Some Real Good Stuff.  Listen in at www.wdrv.com.

I should mention they will take a break Sunday monrning from 7 to 10 CST (remember to fall back on your clocks) when Bob Stroud's Rock and Roll Roots show goes back to 1972 for songs playing during that presidential election.
