This is not the way that I had wanted to return to the air after a hurricane forced a hiatus. WMEL is still recovering from damage, and while they are on the air, the late night hours are not available to me yet. After Tom Petty's passing on Monday October 2, 2017, I knew that I had to do a show. I hope that you enjoy the nearly 3 hours of his music that I have assembled for you.

Thank you to Jerry Durney for joining us over the phone for a few minutes for this special.

Tom Petty's music means a lot to me. Different moods and different reasons, there is always a Tom Petty songout there. I'm still in shock. Tom Petty, thank you!!
