The Rhetorical Situation, May 11, 2010

I have no idea what happened during this episode of The Rhetorical Situation because my brain has been fried by academia. But I see from the playlist (below) that we played some damn good songs! I think I went on some self-indulgent rant about midway through the show (see: any week), and was this the week that someone called in to say we're his/her favorite show on the station? Anything is possible.

The Builders and the Butchers, "Short Way Home"
The Velvet Underground, "I'm Waiting For The Man"
Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, "100 Days, 100 Nights"
Gil Scott-Heron, "Me and The Devil"
The Beatles, "A Day in the Life"
