The 45th anniversary of The Cars' "Candy O" album is being celebrated by the syndicated radio show In The Studio With Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands.

Redbeard shared this synopsis: By the 1979 July 4th holiday, a scant fourteen months after The Cars' debut album had surprised all but a handful of early adopters around their Boston assembly line, all eyes and ears were trained upon the quintet's next model, Candy O. The consensus that The Cars' debut was one of the strongest first efforts in rock history was by then only beginning, a notion that has grown to Rolling Stone magazine ranking it at #16 on their Top 100 Debut Albums All-Time list. In a pre-You Tube world, the act of staying home on a Saturday night just to catch The Cars perform on Saturday Night Live was a testament to their unfolding appeal, and by filling the very same stage that had seen the Rolling Stones on the 1978 Fall season opener, it elevated The Cars to the winners circle by the time the Sunday paper was on your doorstep.

Americana duo Surrender Hill just released their seventh album "River Of Tears" and to celebrate we asked Robin Dean Salmon to tell us about the song "Last Goodbye". Here is the story:

his song came about while we were taking a couple of days of R & R at a friend's house on Lake Keowee in South Carolina. We went out on their boat, and on the way back to their house, a big storm started rolling in. Everything got pretty choppy out on the water, and we made it back just before the sky opened up. Afton and I were sitting inside watching the storm come in over the lake, and we started talking about her family in Alaska and what it must have been like out fishing when storms came in. I traveled to Alaska with Afton in 2014. We spent time with her family and friends of the family. They told stories of the many adventures at sea. We thought about the many goodbyes and how you never really know what could come your way out there on the ocean. "Last Goodbye" is a song about two lovers and a goodbye as one leaves on a boat and the other stays on shore. Could it be the last goodbye? (continue)
