Lights, Camera, Music! 12/4/2018


#27

Hello there! If you're just joining me and wondering what's going-on here, I'm doing a three-tiered year-end countdown to 2019 throughout the month of December. I'm sharing some of my favorite photos from the past 12-months and counting-down my Top-30 favorite NEW songs of 2018. I'm also counting-down 30-songs from albums celebrating milestone anniversaries to mark my 30th year in radio broadcasting!

Working as a helicopter reporter for WBZ NewsRadio 1030 in Boston, I'm truly blessed to have the incredible view I'm treated to twice-a-day all year long. It certainly opens up numerous unique photo opportunities over the Boston area, but every now and then I like to head out on-foot and see the places I've become accustomed to seeing from 900-feet-up from a fresh perspective on the ground. Today's shot is one of those...


Hancock Tower from the Charles River Esplanade in Boston

Over the past couple years, I've become interested in capturing images of the city and nature together. I took this photo of the Hancock Tower from one of the islands on the Charles River Esplanade. You can take-in this view yourself as there are footbridges leading onto the island and during the Summer months, Night Shift Brewery of Everett runs a beer garden here!

We have reached #27 in the Top-30 countdown of my favorite NEW songs of 2018. That spot goes to Django Django! They are a four-piece band out of London that cover a number of different styles including art-rock, progressive-rock, pop, and psychedelia. They just recently finished-up a tour that stopped at The Paradise in Boston back in October.

"Marble Skies" is the third studio-LP from Django Django. It was released when the year was young back in January and I've selected the neo-60's track "Tic Tac Toe" for the countdown!

Today's Anniversary-30 selection is from an album that was in the radio station record bins when I first started my radio career at 90.7 FM WKKL (on Cape Cod) back in 1988.


The Waterboys - Fisherman's Blues

Scottish-Irish group, The Waterboys got together back in 1982 and has undergone many lineup changes over the years. "Fisherman's Blues" was their fourth album and it marked a stylistic change for the band as they added more traditional Irish and Scottish elements to their music. It would go to become their best selling record. "Fisherman's Blues" turned 30-years-old this year. Let's celebrate that by adding the title-track to the Anniversary-30 playlist. Happy listening! -Kristen
