Tune in Friday, Sept. 7, at 5 p.m. East Coast time to hear The Fixx's version of "These Boots Are Made For Walkin' " on wtmd.org.

This is a really great commercial-free station out of Baltimore.

Monday-Friday at 5 p.m. (well, a few minutes after 5, following the news), they do something called the Five O'clock Shadow, in which they play a cover song followed by the original. It's a very cool feature and "These Boots" is slated for Friday, barring any unforeseen complications.

Thanks for the tip - I just listened in! The DJ introduced the song by saying the boys had played a good show at Pier Six over the summer :) Their version was played, followed by the original. The DJ followed up by saying the Fixx had captured the spirit of the original, yet reinvented it, and gave the details of the album it features on.

Way to go boys and WTMD!!!!

When I met Cy this past summer, the song came up in conversation. I told him I had never cared for it until the Fixx did their version. He said, "oh, I always liked that song"!
