The anticipated high for today is 103* here, but 107* in Memphis and only 94* in Tampa! I just hope everybody is staying hydrated and cool. Dog days are here, for sure.

Jazz, swing, blues, and lounge music are featured on the internet radio station I've been enjoying lately, Redlounge. Their top ten artists are:

1. Michael Buble
2. Norah Jones
3. Frank Sinatra
4. Diana Krall
5. Ray Charles
6. Jamie Cullum
7. Joss Stone
8. Erin Bode
9. Etta James
10. Dean Martin

Is that an eclectic mix, or what? It's where I discovered Marcia Ball . How she's escaped my notice until now, I don't know. One of those bluesy piano player/singers from Texas/Louisiana with a truly unique sound, I'm trying to decide which of her songs to download. I like being able to pick and choose from different albums. I should have some new travelling music when I go to Memphis on Thursday, if I can figure out how to cut a CD from the songs I've downloaded.
