1:04:24 Audio Feedback

- Email from Bronwyn Bryant looking for a 200 bpm version of "I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate". I don't have an answer for her, but it did remind me of a great version of the song by Frances Faye from her album Caught In The Act (available in iTunes).

- Mention of Brian Renehan's MLX6 podcasts.

- Audio comment from Yehoodi's own Slick Rik about "Idlewild Blues" by Outkast.
