Foreign Cities request theme + Pearl Jam & Patty Griffin links!

We’re giving away the new Patty Griffin album all week between 3 & 4pm as our Album of the Week!

And just today, I came across an interesting story about the Pearl Jam/fan relationship, which I thought was appropriate to post in the wake of today’s news about PJ coming to Cville to play JPJ 10/29!!!

 

Every Weekday at 6pm, we do a request hour with a different theme, started by the New Song of the Day.  Here’s what actually got played among the requests tonight…
