Still adapting...

...to life with an iPod.

But I heard three great songs, in a row, on the radio the other day and somehow remembered all of them so I could purchase them on iTunes. They were:

1. Get Myself Arrested - Gomez

2. Beercan - Beck

3. Perpetual Blues Machine - Keb' Mo'

You may wonder, as I wondered, what glorious radio station would play 3 wildly eclectic songs like this in a row.

Well, my friends, it was one of NYC's local public radio stations out of Fordham University WFUV-FM. It's 90.7 on my radio dial, but they also stream on the internet. It is really the one and only place that I go to in my search to hear new music.

Public radio is not dead! It just needs a little help from all of us, so support your local sheriff...and public radio station.
