Starting this Friday, WMMQ is running the Memorial Day 500. It's the Top 500 Classic Rock Songs in the History of Mankind brought to you by Extreme Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram in Jackson.

I started thinking about my top 10. 500 would take way too long. My list is not the greatest songs in Classic Rock history. It's more of the moments I absorbed since I have been here at Classic Rock 94.9 WMMQ. These are my memories of the people I worked with personalities, friends and listeners. I have heard all the songs a lot. I like to go a bit deeper in the catalog. Well, for some.

One time, I was leaving the station on a Saturday and I told the late Larry Allen, "play me some Rush for the ride home."

He put on this song and it lasted my entire drive. I have so many great tunes Larry turned me on to but this one will always stand out.

Also just missing the cut was AC/DC. We used to do a patriotic version of "For Those About to Rock" but we decided maybe it wasn't the easiest song for war Veterans to hear and stopped airing it. In Honor of Memorial Day Weekend... I share it with you again. ENJOY! Have a Happy Memorial Weekend. Stay Safe.
