Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
Score one for XM. I'm driving yesterday listening to my latest favorite channel - they seem to come in phases, currently "The Loft" (XM 50) - when a song comes on that just ... flat ... blew me away.
"At My Most Beautiful," by R.E.M. Echoes of the Beach Boys, great lyrics from Stipe actually singing rather than mumbling, and just an amazing piano line. For a band I loved (Murmur through Document) and then followed since, how did I miss this song?
And why can't we have more "whoa moments," songs coming on the radio and making us nearly pull over so we can listen closely? I think we could all use those. XM does that to me more than radio has in the last decade. If the upcoming MLB package hasn't pushed you to try it, maybe a whoa moment will.
