Top 5

You ever read High Fidelity by Nick Hornby? If you said “no,” go read it because it’s a good book. If you said “no, but I’ve seen the film adaptation with John Cusack and Jack Black,” you’re off the hook because it’s a good movie.

Anyway, in High Fidelity the narrator and the two guys who work at his record store like to kill time by making Top 5 lists. The lists are often things like “Top 5 Favorite Dustin Hoffman films” or “Top 5 Favorite Side 1 Track 1s” or “Top 5 Songs About Death” and stuff like that. This gave me an idea — why not do something like that with my radio show? And so the weekly Top 5 was born, and it is now a staple of Listen Up!
