I could barely finish my talk set when I announced that I had played Magnetic Fields' "I Don't Want To Get Off Of You." I started laughing during the talk set and it took every last bit of energy to finish the talk set without breaking out into a roar of laughter. As soon as I made it through the talk set, I was in tears I was laughing so hard. I almost ripped the mouse out of the computer because I got my cast tangled up in the cord.

Anyway, we recently got Ella Fitzgerald's First Lady of Song 3-CD set at the station. It is my favorite collection of her songs (besides her Louis Armstrong duets). "Airmail Special" is one of the craziest songs ever... she scats like she just drank a gallon of espresso. She even scats a little bit of "And the Angels Sing" in it as well.... I love that song.

Entire playlist can be found here.

I caught "23 Minutes in Brussels" - it was great to hear that on the radio.
