"I guess I got whacked hard in the mystery department when I was little. I found the world completely and totally fascinating then - it was like a dream." ~David Lynch
The fascinating and dream like way in which David Lynch sees the world has been infused into his unique body of creative work during his 62 prolific years. With David Lynch's birthday coming up this Sunday I decided this week's show would be the perfect time to play some songs from a compilation cd that I put together a couple years ago as a birthday present for David. Tune in Saturday night at 9pm!
