I’ve been on a bit of a Thin Lizzy trip lately, so I was extremely happy to find this link via MOJO:

As the description explains, “In 1982, a 70-year-old English´╗┐ granny named May Booker wrote a letter to the BBC about her favorite band, and how nice it would be to play with them. Then this happened.”

Here be the song that sparked the recent Lizzy listening (although the version on my ipod is a live session from John Peel’s show).

I decided to check out “Tom Robinson Introducing…” a free BBC podcast available on iTunes. Robinson showcases music that he (or his worker bees) select from myspace. The picks are uneven, but one song that stood out was “Jennifer” by Paisley and Charlie. Here is “White Horses”.
