May 18! #E2TG 5 Year Anniversary Spectacular at The 5 Spot!
Another day at the State Park... or at least half a day. Long drive home - GPS diverted me around traffic and on an interesting tour of West Nashville. I listened to 35 songs from the Throwback playlist and feeling adventurous, I am presenting 23 of those songs for you today. Minimal verbiage today. I think all but two of the actual songs are found in video form in the playlist. The other two are substituted by the same artist. Go!

"Have a snowcone and enjoy the show!"
"Don't Ask Why" by The Replacements
