Before the music, let me say this: I made an honest mistake for Monday’s post in not linking to NPR, which was then misconstrued in a comment as a slight to the NPR staff and its hard work. That was not the case. I quickly updated the post and also sent an apology to All Songs Considered.
We should all be thankful that NPR and artists, such as Colin Meloy, have made these shows on the Live Concert Series available for download; it’s a great service for fans. In no way, did I intentionally mean to undermine the diligent work of NPR and All Songs Considered. Their site is a tremendous resource for music fans; I can personally – and highly – recommend the ASC podcast.
My sole intention of splitting this NPR show (and others like it) is for the sake of convenience. It’s difficult to maneuver through an hour-plus file; it’s somewhat like a cassette tape – rewinding and fast-forwarding. I like to skip tracks sometimes, and I assume others do, too. However, I encourage you to visit NPR’s Live Concert Series page to download the concerts in their entirety. More specifically, the download of Colin Meloy’s concert can be found here.
Hope everyone enjoys this.

I’ve not been able to log in to MySpace for like two months, even though I’m using my correct e-mail address and password. Their technical support is lacking; automated messages are about all I’ve gotten. Wondering if I just need to create a new page. Anyone encountered this problem?? I’m having MySpace withdrawals …
