Two notable things this week:

1) I came across a number of interesting versions of the Byrds' song "Eight miles high" and figured I'd play them all in a set in today's show, which I did. I thought they were all good examples of how a song can be covered in a way that bears a resemblence to the original but also heads out in other directions.

2) This week and last, I've had the pleasure of training a new programmer, Matt. He's keen and is picking everything up very well. Today, he ran the board for much of the show, played ads, and made the PSA announcements. Next week, he'll be hosting the 8-10 am section of Breaking The Tethers (I'll be doing 7-8 am only). He should do well.
