So many versions of "Autumn Leaves" to choose, since the official arrival of Fall at 2am this morning... so let's go with the popular Jo Stafford, reportedly recorded the first English-translated version (and the internet is never wrong).
Speaking of the internet... via the magical tubes listener Gary Woloski sent me this po-em he wrote while cycling and gave me permission to post:
Push-bike or motor
Don't brake like you not otter
Nor leaf a skid mark.
- Gary Woloski, 2008
Then to a request for John in Vancouver for Rosie Flores, and a new track from Nick Lowe's latest album The Old Magic... he appeared on Q recently as well.
The latest podcast is out - subscribe here or download it directly - featuring a 15-minute prog-rock opus by Spookey Ruben. Since I can't play that on Earlier, I have a different cut from another album of his...
...and Nirvana's Nevermind turns 20 years old tomorrow, so we wrap with fellow Seattle musician Sara DeBell, who recorded a version of their signature tune that everyone can enjoy.
