Talking Heads – This Must Be The Place

As a recent graduate of MSU, today is my last day of employment at WDBM Impact 89FM, so I figured I’d be a little selfish and play one of my favorites for this Jam of the Day.

A few weekends ago, I was sharing a bucket with my Impact friends at Crunchy’s. This song came on, and I had a sort of “whoa” moment. As a kid, I loved the legends of college rock. Artists like Joe Jackson, R.E.M., and Talking Heads were a huge part of my childhood obsession with the collegiate lifestyle, and by the time I was a college freshman, I was thrilled to be walking across campus to the sounds of The Shins and Vampire Weekend like the archetypical young turk that I was (and maybe still am). So, when this song came on–a song that I’d heard a bazillion times– I thought, “Here I am, listening to this college music with college radio friends at a college bar,” and it was eerily what I had always pictured growing up. Both 5-year-old me and 18-year-old me would be stoked to know that I ended up working at the greatest college radio station on Planet Earth, WDBM Impact 89FM. Anyway, I’ll cut the self-indulgence and just thank all of my Impact friends for making a life-long dream of being involved in college radio come true. MSU and the Impact will always be the place.
