What’s the soundtrack to your Emerson experience?
“It’s Just Another Morning Here” by Nanci Griffith brings me back to my days at Emerson. Why? I got up early to put WERS on air by 6:00 am for The Coffeehouse.

“Imagine” by John Lennon. I was a freshman in October 1971 when it was released. I heard it for the first time in line for dinner at the cafeteria behind 130 Beacon. I was just frozen, listening to the lyrics and how [they] completely resonated [with] my beliefs at that moment. All seemed possible. Resonates even now.
