Friday Music Blog

Welcome to the Friday Music Blog on Chief 187™Chatter.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers are reporting for duty in Phoenix for Chase Race No. 9 of 10.

Meanwhile, I’m still sitting in my home powered by a generator hoping I can find a restaurant with a play area and Wifi to upload this piece.

And through it all – racing and storm recovery – music keeps me humming like nothing else can. The Friday Music Blog is my longest continuously running feature and it still cheers me to no end.

This week’s topics start with songs that have the word “Phoenix” in the title, lyrics, and/or artist’s name.

The next focus is songs with the name “Sandy” in the title, lyrics, and/or artist’s name.

The last topic is songs with the word “survive” in the title, lyrics, and/or artist’s name.

Continue to check on and add your selections throughout the day and weekend as the list grows.

With no power, no internet, no cable, no phones, no work, no school, and little outside contact, it has been a challenge for my family and me, but we continue on knowing we were so very lucky.
