Not to warm up any deadhead jokes — though we still don’t know how many copies of the the Eleven Mrs I-am-not-a-Deadhead Tilton has — but there is enormous fun to be had here where the vaults of the Bill Graam Organisation are spilling out as mp3 streams.

It’s all a bit more raucous than my normal morning listening, but there’s nothing wrong with stuff that makes you want to jump around the room flapping like an excited dodo. This bulletin on Imminent extinction brought to you via Crooked Timber. The really humiliating game is to see how many of the songs I can recognise without peeking at the playlist.
