With the Fountains of Wayne still in my ears, today I searched for a power-pop compilation for the drive home from Tulsa. I struck gold: a 10-hour Spotify playlist featuring everyone from Dwight Twilley and Cheap Trick, to the Nerves and the Rubinoos, a cult favorite from Berkeley that the L.A. Times called “the right band at the wrong time.”
