Is the mixtape episode of This American Life available anywhere online?

Is the mixtape episode of This American Life available anywhere online? I think it was done by Sarah Vowell, I remember hearing it sometime before 2003, and probably much before. But it doesn't appear on the show's archives. Am I going crazy? Maybe it wasn't TAL but I'm almost positive... Please help! [more inside]

Elvis Costello song

Elvis Costello fans, does anyone know the name of the following song? All I can remember (very vaguely) is that it's by Elvis & that the lyrics reference a closet upstairs where it's always Christmas, or something very similar to that.

Louis Armstrong music

Help me expand my paltry collection of Louis Armstrong. I have "King Oliver," "Satch Blows the Blues" and the 20th Century Masters "The Best of Louis Armstrong" (and perhaps a few other in the same vein which I cannot locate due to the general disarray in which I store music). However enticing this stuff is, it all represents sort of the big hits stuff. I would like to find some of the more obscure and personable stuff. I just saw this amazing clip at http://www.oxfordamericanmag.com/webextras.cfm. Is there similar stuff on disc with Louis in his prime?

Recent pieces for solo brass instruments?

[New-Classical-Music Filter] What are your favorite pieces from the last few decades (or have you written anything) for solo trumpet, trombone, bass tbn, or tuba? Seeking scores and/or recordings to study (online availability would be a huge plus). Small-chamber works, other than brass quintet, would be great too. Asking because I haven't written for brass insts. except in orchestra/large-ensemble contexts, and I want to explore solo/chamber writing for them. Yes, I'll also get what I can from newmusicjukebox. Thanks!
