I’m not sure why this was such a surprise to me but there is a christian (is this a small c or big C?) rock/pop station in the DC area. I was enlightened to this fact during my shuttle ride from the dealership to my office. The driver would, between the hard braking and the sudden acceleration, start singing along to the songs on the radio.
They even have a wacky morning show crew.
Which brings me to Jars of Clay. I remember listening to that CD over and over again and never realizing that it was talking about Jesus, God or anything related. I just really liked that CD and especially the track “Flood”. I’m not sure why it was so affecting to me, I just remember that the the CD rarely ever left my stereo.
That was until I was introduced to Aphex Twin, DJ Shadow, Ben Harper and other types of music that year.
