We had a really exciting morning at here KTOO . At about 10:40 a slight burning smell started filtering into our offices and the KXLL studio. It wasn’t long before the fire alarm went off and we were standing around the outside lot wondering when it would be appropriate to call 9-11. Luckily, we didn’t have to wait that long – but next time there’s a drill or real fire I’m popping these songs into the lineup.
Burning Down the House – Talking Heads
David Byrne encourages you to burn in style and “Hold tight, wait ’till the party’s over.” Great advice.
Disco Inferno – The Tramps
Depending on how you feel about your workplace, a disco dance party might be appropriate.
Fire – Jimi Hendrix
Jimi only has one burning desire and you should too, evacuate the building.
Light My Fire – The Doors
Since you can’t do real work – think about the dreamy Jim Morrison while waiting out the fire. This is his notorious performance on the Ed Sullivan show. He says “higher” at 1:50.
Ring of Fire – Johnny Cash
Love, like whatever flowed through our ventilation system, is a burning thing. Johnny cash knows it.
Let your drive home burn up on Annie on the Spot today at 4:00 where you will hear all these songs.
