I am doing Pelotonia this year. I saw the pictures of my coworkers doing this awesome bike ride and raising funds for cancer research at the same time, and I thought, “I have to do this.” Also driving this thought was the fact that someone I’ve known since high school, one of the brightest stars in the galaxy, died of cancer a few months ago. We all thought she’d still be with us until the fall. We were wrong.

So, this show is (mostly) about riding bicycles, keeping the foul weather in check, and more riding in general. Queen, of course, is here, as are Kraftwerk, Empire of the Sun, and a new song from (yep) Ride that is gobsmackingly good. Like, Song of the Year good. To me, anyway.

That Queen song, by the way, gets my vote for the most dated song in the history of time. “Jaws,” “Star Wars,” Vietnam, Watergate…when do you suppose that song was written?

If you care to donate to my ride, you can do so here. I thank you in advance.

Thank you, as always, for listening.
