For this New Sounds program, we finally get to the last batch of new releases from 2008. Look for the new release of Gavin Bryars played by Sentieri Selvaggi, something from post-rock outfit Mountains, perhaps a bit by the Celtic/Baltic/Sephardic-sounding Teslim, maybe some squonk-rock from Gutbucket, and maybe a little something from the new Jim Hall/Bill Frisell collaboration. And much more.

Peter Horn from Plainfield, New Jersey

As a high school teacher who would like tomorrow to stream John Schaefer's comment and the "Obama" song for a class where we have been discussing new music, I got to thinking how many editions of your program feature music that would interest students like mine. I wonder if you would consider targeting the imaginative, music-listening high school audience for a New Sounds special edition designed for their ears and minds...

Thanks for an outstanding program!
