    I love this idea of a playlist! Listening while I work now. Wish Heritage would let me put one of these together for Heritage Explains. Perhaps our experts favorite songs? Ha. Probably won’t happen :) HAPPY FRIDAY.

     I don’t know if I appreciated “It’s Gonna Rain’ but I’m sure I wouldn’t have heard it at all without Mr. Nordlinger’s podcast. Yes @michellecordero you absolutely should put together a Heritage Favorites on one of these slow August days in DC.

    Okay, “Steal Away” immediately triggered some synapses in my head and I dug up this thread…

    It sounds like techno, without the courtesy of a back beat. Or dubstep lacking the base drops. I can appreciate the value in trying to innovate on the standard forms but, well, I’d much rather listen to the show tune that followed.
