 Greetings from Sunny and chilly Nashville, Tennessee.  We are back with a real honest to goodness music shuffle, and we’ve loaded up our November playlist with a stellar selection of tunes from the distant past to the up-to-the-minute present.

Star and Micey are a Memphis based alternative/folk/rock/soul – oh hell, they just make damn good music. Today we have a live acoustic version of the song Number 1 which we got from a split Noisetrade sampler the band released with Carolina Story in support of their recently completed Soul Stormin’ Tour.

Here is the band’s recently released record, I Can’t Wait

Here’s Star and Micey from SXSW 2012

Coincidentally, our good friends Skeletons in the Piano posted a recommendation on Facebook to listen to Chuck Berry, and lo and behold, look who’s up in our Morning Shuffle from hours earlier…  We have School Days by the iconic Chuck Berry. It is the lead track from his debut album from 1957 called After School Session.

The always amazing Elizabeth Cook retells the biblical story of Samson and Delilah with the traditional song, If I Had My Way, I’d Tear This Building Down (which has also been recorded as Samson and Delilah most famously perhaps by The Grateful Dead).  Cook’s version of the song appears on her Gospel Plow extended play which was released earlier in 2012.

Current Featured Artist, Diana Lawrence is up next with another song from her To: Aging Children album – the stunningly beautiful Where Am I Growing Up To?

Here’s Diana with The Dishes

The always amazing Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros close out this morning’s shuffle with Give Me a Sign which came to us from the free Community Music Sampler – available via Amazon.

Amazon also has the latest Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros album Here for a mere $5.00


Green Day’s Dos is out and $5.00 at Amazon
