Ladies and gentlemen, David Byrne is floating in space.

Radio Byrne-man has updated his monthly stream, and, in celebration of the IRA cease fire in No. Ireland, is featuring three hours of "nonstop psychedelic beauty." Not sure I see the connection, and once again there's too much Donovan (and no Van Morrison?), but it's great to hear mildly trippy chestnuts like Thunderclap Newman's "Something in the Air" replace the nonstop Italian parade that was running in July. Though, again, how is "Only Living Boy in NY" psychedelic?

The Cream tracks call to mind the recent FMU post that highlighted free-market ticket prices for their reunion tour. Druggy nostalgia don't come cheap.
