WFUV's Question of the Day Didn't Play My Favorite Box or Boxing Songs


Every morning WFUV asks its listeners to pick songs that answer a question.  Today, since it is Boxing Day listeners, were questioned about songs about boxes or boxers.  When I listen at about 6:45 I am busy making and eating breakfast, so I don't get a chance to vote.  Listeners can vote at .  Corny O'Connell plays the winning theme set at about 9:10.  The songs played were:

  • Rosanne Cash "Tennessee Flat Top Box"
  • Wilco "Box Full of Letters"
  • Warren Zevon "Boom Boom Mancini"
  • The Grateful Dead "Box of Rain"
I assume Corny makes the selection, but it could be Ross Boris, the music director.

I would have voted for The Boxer by Paul Simon and Hurricane by Bob Dylan, considering the story of boxer Ruben Carter.  On second thought, they could have played a hit by the Box Tops.
