White Stripes: We're Going To Be Friends
Back to school on the VE...will you be carrying someone's books this fall? Or have you even met yet? The White
Stripes, The Beach Boys, and Steely Dan to begin....and then, there's Miss Crabtree....
Rockpile: Teacher Teacher
Van Halen: Hot For Teacher
Back to School on The VE with Van Halen and Rockpile, Nick Lowe, the lead track from 1980's "Seconds Of
Pleasure"..."Teacher Teacher." If you were away for the summer, the next two should strike home....
Thin Lizzy: The Boys Are Back In Town
NRBQ: Me And The Boys
Reconnecting with the gang, on the Back To Schol edition of the VE. Now, a couple of new
assignments...September 10 is the release date for two anticipated new albums....Bob Dylan's "Tempest," and The
Avett Brothers' "The Carpenter."
Bob Dylan: Duquesne Whistle
Avett Brothers: Live And Die
Back To School on the VE...and two new texts to study...Bob Dylan's Tempest, and the lead song "Du-cane
Whistle" and The Avett Brothers from the forthcoming The Carpenter and "Live And Die." The full albums willbe
out in a couple of weeks, and tere will be a quiz....
On to some life lessons ...back to school means taking stock....but these are for the new graduates...it's a
bittersweet time, but also one of unprecedented opportunity. Some great sopngwriters teach us how to get
started...
Cat Stevens: On The Road To Findout
Taj Mahal: Take A Giant Step
Nils Lofgren: Going Back
The VE....life lessons for post-grads on thte Back To School edition, and the last two written by Jerry Goffin and
Carole King...."Going Back," by Nils Lofgren, andn "Take A Giant Step" by Taj Mahal. If you're at the fork in the
road, here are, as Led Zeppelin sang, two paths you can go by--but there's still time to change the road you're on....
Neil Young: Comes A Time

Replacements: Here Comes A Regular
And that's the VE. A powerful song from The Replacement's 1985 Tim, and "Here Comes A Regular." And Neil
Young, in a more centered place, with "Comes A Time." May the road you chose, rise with you...
There are more VE sessions to catchup with in the archives of PRN.FM and on demand at RTDS.ca. Please share
The VE with the rest of the class on FB, and feel free to steal my crib notes on Twitter. I'm PC
