Coming up on this edition of the show, we're serving up pop songs – New Sounds-style. Listen to Finland’s premier jazz group, Trio Toykeat (their name means “rude ones”) doing David Bowie’s Starman, while pickin’ whizzes Sam Bush (who has played mandolin on the records of everyone from Allison Krauss to Garth Brooks) and David Grisman (Jerry Garcia’s occasional sidekick in a project called Old & In The Way) do a bluegrass cover of of Sam & Dave’s soul classic “Hold On, I’m Comin’”. Plus, hear versions of Radiohead songs by Christopher O’Riley, Russell Donnellon, and others.
