      Today was really nice.

      No ice.
      No snow.
      No sleet.
      No sub-freezing temps.
      No freezing rain.
      No wind.
      No hail.
      No thunder storms.
      No downed trees.
      No rain.
      No power outtages.

      The next cold front will arrive tonight.

      The music was good, too. I chose a new album of the month for Topsoil. No
      frontrunner was jumping out at me, so I picked my favorite album that I've
      been playing for the last few weeks, Virgil Shaw's "Still Falling". Tune in
      each Sunday in March at 1pm to WXDU to hear a chunk of the record.

      Speaking of favorite records of the year, I have a new one: The Postal
      Service "Give Up"

      See ya.

      of these songs ended up re-recorded for his future albums.]
      *Thalia Zedek/You're A Big Girl Now/You're A Big Girl Now/
      [Her latest EP. Great stuff. A fine Dylan cover for the
      title track.]

      There/Escape Artist/Chaos Kitchen

      Bouquet/The Slaughter Rule/Bloodshot

      This song features Cheri Knight on lead vocals.]

      last night. The 45s are always good!]
      *Eddie and the Hot Rods/Shake/Teenage Depression/
      Captain Oi!
      [The 45s do this Sam Cooke song in the style of
      Eddie and the Hot Rods, so I thought I'd bring
      this one in.]
      *The Thermals/I Know The Pattern/More Parts Per
      Million/Sub Pop
      [Completely rocking new album from these guys.
      If you want to hear some great music that resides
      somewhere in between the recent garage rock
      revival and the noisy punk of Mclusky, you
      should give this a listen.]

      *Sole/Plutonium/Selling Live Water/Anticon
      [Those last two cuts of indie hip hop were really
      incredible. This Sole album is now at the top
      of my To Buy list.]

      *Vic Chesnutt/Band Camp/Silver Lake/New West
      [A song about trying to get the girl. Setting:
      High School marching band camp.]
      *Boxing/Thievery and Girls/Way Down East/Robert
      Barry Construction Associates
      [Fans of Giant Sand and Centro-matic really
      need to make a point to check this record out.]
