The Show: Time to light the lamp and trim the wick

Not the TENNIS track (“Diamond Rings”) we played on the show today but the 1970s Carpenters inspired video for “I Miss That Feeling.” A duo from Denver, Colorado who like to get a Stevie Nicks / Cyndi Lauper / Karen Carpenter vibe going on.

The Show: The Joint with The Herb Whisperer presents Miss America featuring NPR vs Peter Robinson x Songs

A long, and possibly unnecessary, title for today’s show but it’s a title very much in keeping with how our top pop stars now like to bill themselves (and in the process ensure their share of any dollar bills generated via streaming).

Peter Robinson from Popjustice wrote about this practice in The Guardian and joined NPR for a special All Songs Considered podcast to explain in more detail.
