Easy contest tonight. Just weave these two random songs together into a little news story-- could be about anything; use your imagination-- and you could win a 2-CD set of the ESSENTIAL GEORGE JONES. The songs are "Windy" by The Association and "House of the Rising Sun" by The Animals. Send your entry-- not too long-- to downwithtyranny@aol.com

LNMC story of the night: I went to see John Hammond play at the Cafe Au Go Go in Greenwich Village in the middle 60s and he had this amazing guitar player, Jimmy James, who played guitar with his teeth. After the show I went over and asked him to come play at my school and he said he would love to but "these fellas," pointing to some Animals, who he introduced me to, were taking him to London to be in their band. He didn't stay in their band long and he didn't keep that Jimmy James name long either. He started his own band and when he returned to America, he did come and play my school, immediately.
