A glowing piece on the WPA seems to be the highlight of the show, and there was one of those old time ditties accompanying the beginning of the segment that was really catching. I miss those. At any rate, I tried to do a google search to find it, but couldn’t. On the other hand, I did come up with this website, the Uncensored History of the Blues, which has a great podcast about the blues in the WPA era, including some songs. Pretty cool. Yet another bookmark in my already crowded folder.
Up now, Jesus Christ Superstar.
The movie review segment is pretty solid- Cadillac Records looks right in my wheelhouse, and Doubt will be a must see. Really, all someone has to do to get me to watch a movie is put Phillip Seymour Hoffman in a role. I think he may be the best actor in Hollywood, and if not the greatest, he is definitely my favorite. Hell, he made Charlie Wilson’s War as Gust Avrakatos, otherwise that was a pretty forgettable flick.
