I tripped over this on youtube today, never heard it before... I thought I'd share and include links to the tracks he mentions at the start.

On hearing The Velvet's "I" on a car radio: "That gave me the first inkling that there was something interesting about to happen in the world."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2g73ut1_6EA


The Robins' "Riot In Cell Block #9" Another song FZ remembers hearing on the radio as a teenager.

Hank Ballard & The Midnighters' "Work With Me Annie" One of the first records FZ heard in the record store.

Gaylords' "The Little Shoemaker" The free record that came with his family's Decca record player. "My mother used to play that while she was ironing. It was the only record that she liked."

Several years ago I made a transcript of that, posted a link to that here. And will do that again since I like it when people visit my site:
