"New York State of Mind" the SOTW

This week we are spinning "New York State of Mind" from Billy Joel's 1976 album, Turnstiles.

Just like all of the Song of the Weeks we have done at Vinyl Voyage Radio, I uploaded a video to Youtube of the song playing on vinyl. The videos are usually flagged for copyright violations, but are usually just monetized by the copyright holder. Not this one. This video was blocked in 239 countries!
As far as I can tell, that's most countries int he world. The only other video to get this Youtube treatment was "A Day in the Life." That video was blocked in "all countries."

If you can, watch it below.

The Song of the Week can be heard on Vinyl Voyage Radio on Wednesday, 10 am and 10 pm (Central) and then throughout the week.

SOTW - "Breakdown" by Tom Petty

Tom Petty never seemed so much a rock star.  Looking more like that awkward child in middle school that we all were, Tom Petty had an ordinary aura about him. Yet he was anything but ordinary.  On Monday after hearing the news and trying to process everything that was happening in the world, I wandered into Barnes and Noble and purchased Tom Petty and the Heartbreaker's Greatest Hits on vinyl. Looking over the track list is was easy to see that this man was a bonafide rock star.

This week on the "Song of the Week," we are spinning Tom Petty's 1976 classic, "Breakdown."

The Song of the Week can be heard at 10am and 10 pm (central) Wednesday and throughout the week on Vinyl Voyage Radio.

Or, listen to it below on vinyl.
