Opening Tracks and Radio Songs: The Sweet Sixteen Continues!

redwood-npGreetings from the Great American Northwest!  The stretch from northern California to southern Oregon has to rank up there with Montana and the Utah-Colorado pass as some of the most beautiful scenery in our country.   My participation in the tournament has been limited by a frenetic 400 mile per day pace, but now that Anna Z. is joining me at the wheel for a week I’ll be able to manage life a little better.

Playlist is herefull rules and philosophy here, and the tournament bracket is here. Listen and vote by  11:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on Saturday, March 30th.  Founding father of rock and roll Chuck Berry seems to be the favorite to make it to at least the Radio finals, while on the lower half of the bracket we might be on the cusp of Queen-Rush vocal show-down. 

See you in the comments!
