2/18/2008 Good Noise


In honor of President's Day, I played music by singers with
'presidential names'. I couldn't find musicians for each president. No Madison, Van Buren, Polk, Taft or Truman. Only one Roosevelt, one Cleveland and only a small Eisenhower reference in a song lyric, maybe next year. I played them in order of when their namesake was in office.
