Comment:

Hats off to the ever-dazzling natalyesaurus, whose May 2 "city on a hill" submission included many Boss-town songs I was not familiar with. I made this playlist last year for myself and a fellow Mass. native who also lives in our neighborhood. Sometimes it's not enough just to wear a Red Sox T-shirt!

Alright, njr. Thanks from another transplanted Mass resident, though I used to live in the western part of the state where people park their cars (not pahk their cahs).
On another note, I just received your package chock full of interesting looking mixes. Yours is on its way to Japan. Thanks so much.

Hats off!
It's maybe ironic that he only band here I have some reservations about is . . . Boston.

Even so , if this fits on a couple of CD's, I'd be mighty motivated to trade for it, if you'd be willing -

The Standells were always my favorite, but I hate the Red Sox with Cardinal passion.
