show notes:
-Rest In Peace, Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse: 1962-2010
- I lied. The British have no consistency when it comes to spelling the word “propellor” (or even “propeller“)
- I mentioned Laura Veirs’ homecoming show this Friday March 12th at Mississippi Studios
- I lied. Last week I mentioned on the air that I was confident KBOO had every Elliott Smith release. Tonight a listener requested this . We didn’t have it.

Johnny Indovina from Human Drama's new disc

I am hoping you'll add a track from the new disc by Johnny Indovina & Sound of the Blue Heart; I think it's a good fit for the show (I'm here in Portland).

Should I send you the cd?

Here's the links to sample some of the tracks:

Hope to hear from you soon,
