On this day in 1974, Watergate-embroiled Richard Nixon resigned The Presidency of The United States. 39 years later, that's still really heavy.
Love him, hate him, forgive him, hold him responsible for the cynical malaise that congealed as 'the seventies" ...Richard Nixon rose higher and fell harder than anyone else in modern history.
And he got name-dropped in lots of cool songs.
Request a few and listen at 9:30 for a set with that Tricky Dick twist.
Here's today's playlist:
1) "Postcards from Richard Nixon" - Elton John
2) "Campaigner" - Neil Young
