|A look at the songs that have shaped|
my life and ended up on my devices.
The Fox touted "Quality rock for St. Louis," but I remember it mostly played 70's hits, like "Jackie Blue" by the Ozark Mountain Daredevils.
I clearly remember hearing this song on a trip home from college in Columbia, Missouri, in the middle of the day, travelling down a sparse stretch of I-70. If there was ever a great road song, this was it.
Two hours to home, with maybe one stop for gas along the way in Kingdom City, home of Ozarkland and the famous McStop (as it was called in 1993).
Mid-Missouri reminds you what green looks like as you cruise through the solitude of farm country and gently rolling hills. Someday, I'll drive it again on a visit back there.
I miss home.
I don't miss the snow, but I miss home.
