Earlier in today's show, we were just talking about music-themed journeys -- visiting the bridge that's mentioned in a classic song, or finding the alley where an album cover was shot. But, as it turns out, you don't have to actually go anywhere to take a musical trip. Host John Schaefer took one the other day, all while sitting in front of his computer. 

Starting with a line mentioned in English singer Kate Nash's new song "Girl Gang," we follow the thread backward -- bumping into the California skater punk band FIDLAR, the neo-disco group Escort, the '70s reggae artist Dillinger, Bob Dylan, and finally, the blind blues artist Reverend Gary Davis
