The recent passing of Robin Gibb, Donna Summer, and Adam Yauch weighed on my mind this week, so I dropped in a song from each. Elsewhere, YEASAYER's back. So is THE AFGHAN WHIGS and GUIDED BY VOICES. Yes, again. And hang out for the final track from grizzled vet RAY WYLIE HUBBARD if'n you want to hear a good story. It's a good one alright, and true too.
