That First Song ...
by Nic Harcourt
April 20th 1998, a date I'll never forget as it was my first day on the air as host of Morning Becomes Eclectic . In the few days leading up to that first show a lot of people were asking me what song would I start my tenure with. I really hadn't thought about it too much as just the move alone from Woodstock NY had occupied a lot of my thoughts.
But on that morning I came into the music library and began pulling songs that I would play on that days show and I began thinking about that first song. I decided on "Start" by the Jam, one of my all time favorite bands.
These are the opening lyrics:
It's not important for you to know my name -
Nor I to know yours
If we communicate for two minutes only
It will be enough
It seemed like as good a beginning as any.
