    “… I would listen to music on my dad’s old sawdust-covered radio. I don’t remember what station it was… but they played ‘Curious’ all the time. It was a song that I always got in my head, and to my little mind it was a really sad, longing song for someone far away; maybe a parent or friend long-lost. Years later… I still get those nostalgic feelings when I hear the first few bars of the song. And yes, it still gets in my head and stays there for days.”

    Guarantee that was 102.1.

    Nifty compilation. My favourite was Twin Library’s version of Doesn’t Really Matter.
