This afternoon’s ‘Tickets @ 2′ song is “Magic Man” by Heart. The “Magic Man” is Mike Fisher, the group’s original guitarist. He was Ann Wilson’s boyfriend. In 1974, Nancy Wilson (Ann’s sister) joined the band and Fisher became their manager and sound engineer.
The line, “Come one home girl…” relates to Ann Wilson’s mother. The line, “Try to understand, mama, he’s a magic man” is ann’s response. Wilson says that her mother helped keep her grounded when she was rather irrational and acting under the spell of her “magic man.”
When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller #7 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see “The Planets” featuring stunning footage of outer space accompanied by music performed by the Pacific Symphony on Saturday, July 13th at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre.
