Thanks to my thirteen months as host of AMKE, I have reluctantly become a morning person. One of the things that makes it tolerable - being a daywalker, that is - is Jordan and Dori, playing good tunes on the radio. So, occasionally I hear a song that inspires, and today was the 7 O’Clock Sample, “Rapid Summary” from Big Daddy Kane, using “Lean on Me” from Bill Withers. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to tie it all together with our 5 O’Clock Shadow, featuring Club Nouveau’s cover to bookend an absolute legendary song by Withers.


Makes me want to spend a week following their lead. Let’s make that happen.
