Nirvana Featured On 90s @ Noon All Week
I remember where I was.
I had just drove to WIlliamsburg, Virginia to the campus of WIlliam & Mary for tickets to see the Smashing Pumpkins on their Siamese Dream tour.
Then the radio broke my heart in a million pieces:
"Kurt Cobain was found dead...."
"....apparent gun shot wound..."
That was a really long drive back to Langley, A.F.B. to pick up my dad from work.
The radio kept playing Nirvana for the 45-minute trek.
As time goes by I feel less connected to that pain, though it felt very personal at the time. At least for me and most fans of Cobain that I knew, every single one of us took it personally.
I take the passing of Cobain's 50th birthday pretty personally, too.
Listen all week to the 90's @ Noon for a nice dose of Nirvana each day, plus those bands that were unleashed to the cultural lexicon because of a sensitive blonde-haired kid from Washington.
