So as promised, this is the first of what may become regular open threads whereby PA readers are invited to inform the rest of us–preferably with links–about the tunes they are listening to these days. This can and I hope will include some newer music, since that’s mostly not in my repertoire.

This seems like a good way to spend some time on an August Friday afternoon, doesn’t it?
