ROOTS with ROBB Classic Album: PINK FLOYD Wish You Were Here!

First off, I’ll start by saying shame on me for waiting 2+ years into the show before tackling Pink Floyd.  Now that that’s out of the way, I chose Wish You Were Here because it’s my favorite album of theirs.  Was it always my favorite Floyd record, probably not.  But your tastes change as you age. …read more »
