Energy in the Air

Last week marked the beginning of the Summer of Love.  Tonight marks the beginning of Summer in the Windsor/Detroit area.  Each year throngs of people line both sides of the river to celebrate the respective birthdays of each country.  The night is punctuated by not only a stunning fireworks display but too much traffic.  Yikes.  Oracle started off the morning on a high note and you can see for yourself what tunes were featured.  Better yet, download the show and have a listen.  Cheers!!
