happy fishing, listeners.

couple post-scripts:

let me know if any of the links don't work.

if anyone has any idea how i can find a copy of the version of "Song to the Siren" that Tim Buckley does on the Monkees TV show, the "Frodis Caper" episode (which is the best of the Monkees episodes, & trust me, i know what i'm talking about--& i've just discovered it was in fact the last Monkees episode...) at the very end, sitting on a wrecked car with a twelve-string, please tell me because i've been looking for it for about 5 years now. even amazon failed me. they thought they could get it from Italy on a weird box set but after about 6 months had to admit defeat. speaking of Buckleys, ooh look what i found.

NPR has a great streaming radio page for All Songs Considered.

can't mention "I Walk the Line", or Johnny Cash, without mentioning the new movie, which i am gleefully anticipating. Joaquin Phoenix is a most unusual actor, & i've dug the Man in Black ever since i saw him doing "Ghost Riders in the Sky" on The Muppet Show way back when.

sorry about all the pop-ups, guess these music sites have to pay their way somehow. how much better would it be though if i could just upload all these songs to the fish & you could just sit & listen, for however much of three hours you could stand? ah, wishful thinking.

Shakespeare's Sister, This Mortal Coil, Nick Drake, Beta Band, The Magic Numbers, The Magnetic Fields.............that's just a damn groovy playlist.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Cool, looks like some interesting new music for me to check out.

Walk the Line looks like its going to be an amazing movie. I read that he does some if not all of the singing himself. Really cool.

i have excellent taste in music--er, i mean eclectic. or both.
i'm hoping this is like fly fishing, where i sent this out into the air/water/cyberspace, & get new music back.

Well, then tit for tat.

The Love X Nowhere
Jose Gonzalez
The American Analog Set
The Caribbean

And I'll stop there just in case I'm way off the mark.

A Smiths fan as well Jenn - splendid. Most important British band of the last 30 years bar none. Bit like Marmite - you either love them or you hate them. No middle ground.
