Every now and then an album comes out that immediately goes into high rotation on my personal playlist. Such was the case when I heard the eponymous debut from Ben Folds Five.

The poppy melodies and three-part harmonies won me over on my very first listen.

When they came to play LA for the first time, they made their Los Angeles radio debut on the air with me at fm101.9.

The date was  October 18, 1995
