Five on Friday Set 18

Posted: Friday, June 04, 2010 by Travis Cody in

I don't remember the program.  I don't remember the date.  I do remember that it was some late night Friday music program in the very early 1980's.  That's the first time I saw Huey Lewis and the News.  

I'd heard the single Do You Believe in Love on the radio and liked it.  But on this program they played Workin' For A Livin'.

Huey absolutely jammed on the harmonica and I've been a fan every since.

And so I bring you Huey Lewis and the News for Set 18.

  1. Woo hoo! First!

    My favorite Huey Lewis & the News tunes are I Want a New Drug and Hip to Be Square. They totally transport me back to high school, Trav!

  1. I always liked Huey Lewis & the News. They were very commercial, but I liked them.

    Ah, Huey Lewis & The News - great choice, Travis! Takes me right back to Stockton, California in late 1984/1985 when I was just starting out in police dispatching and it was just myself and my son. It was tough at times but mostly good times! I still own two Huey Lewis CDs - perhaps I need to break them out this weekend?

  1. Trav, Hughey Lewis and the News! Love them! Thanks for sharing them!

    Trav: Just stopping by cuz I always stop by. Love to see if I recognize anything. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. It's always a wake up call. Yesterday I heard a simply stunning version of . . . the first "Prelude and Fugue from the Well-Tempered Clavier." ;-)
