Re: Song during an NPR story

Duke Who?

So I'm at a dance, a couple of us do shots at a bar, I get a D.C. quarter and say, "Kind of appropriate for tonight." They ask why and I show that the tails side is a tribute to Duke Ellington. "Duke who?" Okay, we're dealing with a new crowd here, born after 1980, maybe I've got shirts that are old...

2009 in music

Has anybody tried anything new this year? There's a new Pink Martini album, and the Glee soundtracks have a few songs that hold possibilities for me.

LA venues

Not sure which group to post in, but I'm headed to LA this week, 4/8-4-15, and would hope to fit some dancing in. Can someone pass along some info?

Thanks.
