Flashback: “FM (No Static At All)” by Steely Dan

I thought I’d honor the passing of Walter Becker, who co-founded the Steely Dan pop/rock/jazz group that had so many catchy songs in the 70’s and 80’s, including this particular song which peaked at #22 in 1978. It also was also the name of a movie that was a released the same year about a fictional Los Angeles rock station where the DJ’s stage a mutiny of sorts against their corporate owners, with the song prominent within the film and its soundtrack.

True story: one of my fake radio names was a play on Walter’s name: Walter Pecker. I didn’t care, I thought it was funny. Worth a listen.
