I am always amazed at the synchronicity of songs that I overhear. They can come from the radio, a passing car, the grocery store, an elevator...Somehow they often relate to something personal and specific that I have been working through in my mind, as if through magic. This book object oracle will answer your questions in the form of a song. Dial in your channel. Choose from these stations: Spirit, Mind, Heart, Travel, Weather, Health. Write your question on the slip of paper provided and place it in the hole at the top of the radio. Choose a station book from the back of the radio/book. Flip to a random page, which will contain the title of a song, which is the answer to your question!
This book is also a tribute to the AM radio stations that I have loved over the years, and listened to tirelessly in the studio, specifically those that played the American Popular Standards format with songs from the 1930's-1960's. Sadly, these stations are no longer on the air. Someday, I will build a magic radio to capture them from the ether.
