Yes…these are songs that you almost never hear of anymore…rock classics forgotten by even classic rock stations…you might remember some of them, you might remember the song but can’t remember who did it…some of these songs you wouldn’t even recognize by the artist or the song but when you hear it you’ll go

‘ Oh, yeh, I remember that one ‘…

this list will be updated as Blip makes these songs available…some of the songs I’d like to add are not presently available…

as always, Blip is fickle…these songs were available at the time we Blipped them…but that does not mean they will continue to be available.
