Notes: I absolutely enjoyed the last two sets of music. I'm not inferring the rest of today's show was sub-par, just that the final half dozen songs left me standing in a pleasant dream which helps to make grazing in the dust and lies tolerable.

If you could, pick up the collection of albums containing the last six songs. Greg Brown's 44 & 66, Red House (1984), Iron And Wine's Around The Well, Sub Pop (2009), Bruce Springsteen's State Trooper is a demo so download it from this show, Drag The River's Bad At Breaking Up, Influence (2009), Ilyas Ahmed's Goner, Rootstrata 30 (2009) and Sandy Bull's Still Valentine's Day 1969, Water (2006).

Once you've got those six musical gems set aside 2-3 hours, sit down and relax to the music. Hell, it's cheaper than going to a major sporting event, it lasts forever and the educational attributes cannot be listed. Forget the plague of tourists, stand in the dream and smile.
