    Is it fundraising time there, too? NPR always seems to dredge up the good stuff when the hat is out - yesterday they had a piece on Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon.
     
  2. I wouldn't be surprised.

    Man, Bootsy's got a high voice.
     
  3. Is that him singing on recordings with his Rubber Band, or the other band members?

    I wish I had a working radio.

    National Public Radio.

    The one thing that hasn't been bought by Clearchannel, and consequently, the only good thing left on radio (though some of the content is shockingly close to the parodies that show up on NPR.)

    I heard this piece on Dark Side of the Moon. Apparently Dark Side has spent more time on the Billboards than any other album. 7 hundred and some odd weeks. I think Johnny Mathis rang in second with 4 hundred and change.
