Today is Emmett Till's birthday, born in 1941 and Emmylou Harris wrote a song about him from her latest album Hard Bargain.

There have been many examples of atists who were largely ignored by mainstream media when they died, and I have two examples this morning that have since created a lasting impact: Kate Wolf and Nick Drake.

We wrap it up with a summer time request from Mark for The Jamies, and Moog Cookbook serenade us with their version of a Boston tune (Boston's debut album turns 35 today).

And Tom Heemskerk in Victoria sent in this email for anyone in the Victoria area who would like to toast Shisa, the Royal Theatre & McPherson Playhouse resident dog:

Many, many kind words and thoughts have come my way since Shisa's passing, and I thank you for them! It's obvious Shisa made an extraordinary number of good friends at the theatres and throughout downtown, and so I think it will be fitting to have an informal little gathering in his honour - which will be on Monday, 25 July from 6-8 pm at the Garrick's Head Pub in Bastion Square. Drop by if you can to have a visit, look at some photos, and raise a glass to our buddy.
