Who had a banana seat bike? I did, mine was green. And so did Bob Bland, my guest. Bob is immediately taken back to the summer before his twelfth birthday! He was a man on the town, his first summer his parents left him home alone, on his banana seat bike. No sunscreen. No water bottle.
"Baker Street" just seemed to be the soundtrack to that summer. When he was in the arcade or stores...he'd always hear Bakers Street. Isn't it funny as a kid how the lyrics go over your head? That's how it was for Bob that summer, he simply enjoyed that song. Looking back...what was he singing to?? All the radio stations were playing it because it was a cool song everyone, young and old, could appreciate and enjoy! Bob sure remembers that first summer of careless freedom.
