Just received a text from a pal in Los Angeles informing me that just before 10:00 AM this morning, "Acceleration" was played on radio station KROQ . 8)

Always seemed like an AM radio hit to me, that song .

They used to play it occasionally back in the early 80's when it came out! Remember hearing it several times!

I wrote in once upon a time to ESPN suggesting that they use this music for their coverage of the America's Cup. I feel that it is perfect. :D

I was in the literal interpretation of the lyrics: Burn my boats, burn my money.

If I had the value of one of the boats in the competition, I would never have to work another day in my life. :shock:

Wow! I used to hear that song and ‘Flaming Desire’ a lot on k-roq in my teens.
I once taped a early 80s interview where Bill was on the phone with Richard Blade...if anybody has it...?
