A New York City native, he earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri and reported for the Express-Times of Easton, Pa. for five years before coming to the Oakland Tribune and ANG Newspapers in 1997.

    Josh, what about “Baraccuda” by Heart?

  • Josh Richman

    Hmmm… Judy, I’m guessing you’d suggest “Barracuda” for my iPod, perhaps along with:
    Sunday Papers” (Joe Jackson)
    Dirty Laundry” (Don Henley)
    Mr. Reporter” (The Kinks)

    Point taken; just having a little fun.

    A suggestion someone gave to me is Bruce Springsteen’s The River.

    “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” (Pat Benatar)?
    “Passenger Side” (Wilco)

    To answer requeat in Inside on Page 1 Sept.4th:
    Ithink Palin handled it superbly, and it was a great speech, filled with truths about Obama that Democrats either don’t know, or refuse to believe the facts on the record.

    Want to talk about sexism? How about this: Gov. Palin is said to have stood up to the “good ole boys” in Alaska to get some great things done. Why on earth is she allowing McCain’s good ole boys write speeches that have turned her into an attack dog? They’re going to let her take all the flack for being so nasty about her opponent. Sounds pretty sexist to me.

    Can’t say i’m a fan of her politics but she definately has a better playlist than either Obama or Mccain.

  • Now that she has announced her resignation as Governor, I’ve posted 3 topical playlists. Each is from a different point of view: The Palin Mix, Democratic Mix, and Republican Mix. I think you will enjoy them all regardless of your political affiliations:
