At this time I'm still thinking about covers and for the past five years at around this time of the year I think about doing "When October Goes" recorded by Nancy Wilson (among others). The first time I heard was probably five or possibly six years ago on Hugh Hamilton's Talk Back radio program on WBAI radio. This was not a music program yet there were people who called in to request this song. Keep in mind it was the end of October just before Halloween. Oh how things change all of those great WBAI radio personalities are gone with the only exception being Amy Goodman. Hurricane Sandy damaged the station's tower on the Empire State Building and as a result the station is fighting for its life.I would like to dedicate this song to all those brilliant WBAI talk radio personalities that we don't hear anymore........Bernard Wright, Mario Murillo, Felipe Luciano,
Samori Marksman, Playthel Benjamin, Grandpa Al Lewis and the man who introduced me to this fabulous song....Hugh Hamilton. Long live WBAI.
