Sha la la la la.

Thanks to our friend Mr. Interwebs, here’s the eclectic mix of stuff I was able to listen to today in various formats, thanks to having cool friends who recommend stuff, a few select free “memberships”, and some time to explore, of course:

Folk/blues/comedy guy (from Memphis I think) Todd Snider –three new “live” videos at Rolling Stone Live.

Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, from 1961, a B&W tv thing on youtube… A Night in Tunisia, all 8-plus glorious minutes of it. Twice.

Faith-filled folk-rocker and activist Derek Webb (formerly of Caedmon’s Call), whose show I’m going to see on 10/16. – “Wedding Dress” at YouTube.

Chi-town’s own conscious rapper Common: a brand new song called Blue Sky. Maybe this link  will get you there, I dunno. I’m just testing here…
