UCAP #60 "Rocket Fuel"

A few words of this ep's closing music.

I had intended to use Elton John's "Rocket Man" as the tag on this podcast. I dug out a CD that has that song on it, "Here and There". I played RM a couple times, listening for a clip to use. After a couple listens I realized that the words "rocket man" were the only thing in the song that was suitable for the podcast. So that wasn't gonna work.

The next track on the CD was "Benny and the Jets". We talked about jets in the podcast, so I figured that could be a good choice. But after listening to that one a bit, it wasn't right either.

But then, the final track on the CD was "Take Me to the Pilot". One of my all-time favorite Elton John songs. And there was the word "pilot" in the title!

Now, I realize that the pilot in the song, isn't an aircraft pilot, so it really is the least appropriate of the three. But it's a great song. And it is loosely related to the other songs with "jets" and "rocket" in them. So there you go.

Impressive selection process, isn't it?

I think the link on main page to episode #60 footnotes is wrong - it points to #59.
Correct link:

After listening to the episode I went looking for the Sky King videos and didn't see a link in the shownotes, so here is what I found.
