When preparing a Tom Petty podcast…
You’ve got to do your homework. We here at NewbsRadio celebrate the man’s entire catalog so it was pretty easy for us to wax poetic. Tom Petty is one of these guys that was meant for rocking your socks literally off, he did it in the 70s and as far as one Newb who attended the Pemberton Music Festival a few years back can tell, he’s continuing to send people to the cleaners to… clean their socks… off. Because they’ve been literally rocked… off. And the ground is dirty. That was kind of a stretch, but this episode sure isn’t – this map is rock solid – as any map including Tom Petty should be. Petty now has Tom Petty’s Buried Treasure on the ol’ XM Radio which you can listen to if you actually have satellite radio, and that got us thinking. Why would anyone have satellite radio? No really, we thought what if we were to compose a map that included only rockers who have totally rocked socks off their entire careers and who have now been blessed with their own radio shows? There’s got to be a whole schwack of them by now. And we were right.
So here it is, the DJ Tom Petty Episode of NewbsRadio. Just to catch you up, we REALLY like this music video for Tom Petty‘s “Into the Great Wide Open” so you should Deppenetly watch it as a remedial requirement of listening to this episode.
