Episode 16: Sadly, the music world lost the Cars' songwriting mastermind, Ric Ocasek, in September 2019, at the age of 75. In this episode, Dave, Sarah, and Eric go for a ride with the Cars, starting the journey at their self-titled debut album in 1978 and not stopping until they hit Heartbeat City, released in 1984.

NOTE: As with the past few episodes posted, this one was recorded several months before (and the intro not long before) the coronavirus issues currently affecting all of us, hence the lack of any mention therein. Then again, we're sure you don't mind not being reminded of the current situation while listening. Our best wishes go out to all of you: stay healthy and hang in there!

Featuring: Dave Gershman Eric Greene Sarah Wassell
