This week is very significant to me, in a personal way as my wife (the oft-mentioned Mrs. Smith) and I celebrate our 10th anniversary. It’s been filled with love, joy, adventure, and surprises. It’s also been filled with friends and family, sometimes friends who become like family. What I’ve curated for this week’s radio show is more than a celebration. It’s an experience in storytelling that I want to bring you into.

The 10 Years Going playlist is a soundtrack to a larger story, with pieces told in sequence that build on each other. The music selections come from a mix of songs we were listening to when we found each other, some of the songs who defined who we were at the time of our meeting, and songs that have grown with us over the past decade. It’s an origin story of love that leads to some interesting adventures, and includes some great indie musicians along the way who have become friends to both Mrs. Smith and I over the years.

I mention Mrs. Smith’s blog in the show, and unbeknownst to me, she told a story this week that is profound and beautiful. It pertains to how we got together, and the role that a classic road in London played in our connection. Read her story HERE.

Thank you for listening. We each have a soundtrack to the experiences of our lives. Feel free to share with me (and with all of us) some of the songs on your love story soundtrack.
