No theme this week - unless awesome songs are a theme. And they are, so I guess there is a theme this week. I should mention, in keeping with the historical origins of The-W, that íViva Del Santo! by Southern Culture on the Skids is, in fact, about the El Santo the luchadore.
Sad new indeed. The local college radio station (kcpr) has been playing stuff from various "Peel Sessions" CD's all day. Lots of great bands played live for him and there are quite a few of those CD's out there. I definitely recommend them.
