Not the History of Rock n Roll!

Anyone ever hear a hilarious radio special on the CBC called "Not the History of Rock and Roll"? There were two of these produced. I've heard Part 2, it's got really funny impersonations and faux interviews of David Byrne, Michael Jackson, James Brown and others. I'm trying to locate the first part. Anyone have an idea of where to find it?

Name That Tune :: PBS ThirteenHD Promo

Name that tune please :: PBS is great, and the songs in their promos are actually just as good. Currently running is a promo that ends with the words; "Be More ~ ThirteenHD" (this is PBS Thirteen's High-Def channel which they broadcast in NYC & possibly elsewhere?). The music which accompanies it is a piece that I'd classify as sort of a Blues/Rock/Jazz instrumental. My Question: Name that tune!?! [more inside]

Play some Synyrd. The song. The t-shirt. The angry reply. Yet 1,120 results on Google and still no answer. Where did it come from? A movie? A book? A comedy sketch? Or was it just so common for people to request that Skynyrd be played that the call became ubiquitous?

Indie Rock Interconnections Map

About five years ago I stumbled across a website that contained a terrific "map" of the various Olympia-based post-grunge indie rock bands (such as Sleater-Kinney,Cadallaca, The Softies, Quasi, Sarah Dougher), and the interrelations between them (for instance Sarah Dougher has been a vocalist for both Cadallaca and the Crabs; Corin Tucker is a member of Sleater-Kinney and was also in Cadallaca with Sarah Dougher"). But now, for the life of me, I can't find that site, despite using all of my google-hacking skills. Does anyone else know where that page, or a page like it is?

Name that '80s soundtrack

80s instrumental syth-rock filter: The soundtrack of a commercial I saw on TV yesterday tickled my memory. I remembered liking the song as a kid, but I do not know its name or the name of the band. (Heck, I can't even remember what the commercial was.)

I threw together a midi file of a the choru, which should be instantly recognizable to anyone who knows it (despite my poor attempt at reprocucing it): What is this song?

PBS "On Tour"

Does anyone remember the PBS series "On Tour?" It was on late Saturday nights when I was in high school, and I remember it being sponsored by IBM. Each 60-minute program was composed entirely of different rock bands doing live performances (usually at very large venues). It was usually one or two songs per band. There was an occasional interview with a roadie, but otherwise it was all music. The show's page has been "retired" from Did these shows ever get put on VHS or DVD?
