Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Had a great night last night with friends (why am I now hesitant to say old friends? Long-time friends, maybe?). It was a little cool last night, but overall the weather is cooperating with us on this long weekend.

Let’s continue the Memorial Day the right way, with music to listen to as you prepare for the day, with music from Elvis Costello, the Creatures, the Orange Juice, Rose Elinor Dougall, Edwin Starr, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Joe Tex, Sharon Van Etten, Captains if Industry, the Del Fuegos, Tribe, Koko Taylor, John Mayall, and Buddy Guy.
