Sox are up by one in the top of the third. Even the infant and toddler Breitlings below the Mason-Dixon lione are excited for this one. Or at least their parents tell them to be excited about it when they are leaving me cute voicemails.
Chromewaves expresses sentiments similar to mine regarding the passing of John Peel, and has a great roundup of related tributes and the like. I guess relative to many I had an understanding of who John Peel was from a relatively youthful age, because when I was 13 and was frantically buying up Cure and Smiths records, I was constantly confronted with these CDs in black and grey covers that Peel Sessions were packaged in at the time, and perhaps are still packaged in today. Good idea: ITunes or Emusic should license all the Peel Recordings exlusively and offer them.

The Big Ticket is rightfully jubilant regarding the release of the expanded Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain reissue. I picked up my copy this afternoon and am currently plowing through the non-original tracks right now. God this stuff is good. A lot of it was put in my hands on cassette tape when I had the good fortune to live with Forrest R. Perry, who sent me a hysterical, Joey Sweeney album art-esque photo of himself holding a home-made Kerry sign on a corner in Memphis today.
Jen Kelly of SplendidEZine.com does a better job reviewing the new Thalia Zedek record than I think I did.

My webcasting gig as part of the Radio TeapotHill operation resumed last night with an expanded 150-minute set, and I put together a pretty smashing program, if I do say so myself. I guess having an extra two weeks to peruse the depths of collection really paid off this time. Hopefully I can turn in an equally good slate next week when I am back on my regular slot, Tuesday at 9PM. Here is an approximation of last night's play list (I forgot to do a final save in WinAmp, so, alas, some of the magic has slipped through our fingers):
