The morning spin class at my gym usually has a contingent of early arrivals. We bring our own music and get going before the official start time. Ruth got there before me today and she had one of her better CDs with her -- Meat Loaf's Paradise by the Dashboard Light came on it brought back memories.
I remember the summer that it came out. We lived in Wappingers Falls, NY and, like the song, we listened to the Yankees. We were very familiar with Phil Rizzuto's broadcasting.
I think that was the summer of the NYC blackout as well. It was really weird because we were pretty far from the city and never lost power but our local TV was from NYC. They broadcast the news using flashlights.
