Yep, same here. Gradually came to realize that several songs I enjoyed hearing on KZAP 98.5 FM Sacramento were from the same album, so I got on the bus and bought a copy. Still remember hearing it all the way through for the first time.When I was in high school DSOTM and WYWH were released.
Had an absolutely surreal moment related to that just the day before yesterday: Was having my car serviced and had time to kill. Normally would have just taken a Lyft home, but, you know...COVID. So instead I just wandered around downtown Sacramento for a while. Eventually wound up sitting outside a dog park with my phone connected to the city wifi listening to the reborn KZAP through their smartphone app.
Before long, they played "Us and Them". The file in the station library is one I provided to them from one of the first CDs I ever bought. So...almost 47 years after buying my first copy of the album because of KZAP, I randomly wound up listening to them broadcast one of its songs sourced from my own CD.
Maybe you had to be there, but for me it was One Of Those Moments.
Making it even weirder, I've had overnight shifts at KZAP for almost two years now, during which time I've managed to sneak in the obscured version of "Not Now John", "Cymbaline" and the long live BBC version of "Fat Old Sun". Though I have no idea if anyone listens during those hours...
