Roxann’s Singing Island

20130705_172027Our Deserted Island guest for July 6th, 2013 was Roxann Gagner. She is a teacher at Blatchely Middle School and recently earned her MA degree in History. She grew up in Polson, Montana, enjoys spending time outdoors with her family, has a good voice which she shares on occasion , like karaoke at her wedding. We asked Roxann  which ten songs she would choose to have on hand if stranded on a deserted island, perhaps forever. We played the songs and she shared her reasons for picking them. Here is a recording of the program, her list of songs, and the recipe for Roxann’s favorite dessert, Scotcharoos (it is after all, a deserted island.)

Roxann’s Ten:

1)      Shameless – Garth Brooks

2)      Suspicious Minds – Elvis

3)      Brandy – Looking Glass

4)      Blinded by the Light – Manferd Mann

5)      I Love Rock N Roll – Joan Jett and the Blackhearts

6)      Rollin in the Deep – Adele

7)      Sixteen Tons – Tennessee Ernie Ford

8)      Rockin with the Rhythm of the Rain – The Judds

9)      It’s Too Late – Carole King

10)   Philadelphia Freedom – Elton John
