All of the music in this hour reflects the audio texture one would encounter when experiencing a leisurely ride through San Francisco. Starting north of the Golden Gate, we drive with the windows down on a warm summer evening,

We pass along Doyle Drive through the Presidio until we breakout of the park like atmosphere and enter the Marina and head through North Beach. We are led down through Broadway and the Embarcadero and along Bayshore until we shift gears on to Army St. As we work our way up the hills to Twin Peaks, we enter the Stratoosphunk and ultimately arrive at the summit from which we can derive many impressions of the city. At the altitude we experience the romance that this secluded spot high atop the city provides and come to the realization that this city is one that cannot be taken in pieces, as its richness of culture, scenery, and creativity is tapestry to behold. The soul of San Francisco is its diversity, and it comes all or nothing at all.
