The link seems to lead to #4, not #5.

I know . . . and it was sixteen and a half hours before anyone spotted it.

I guess that's better than sixteen days, huh.

What a beautiful guitar, a Swedish Hagstrom, same model Elvis borrowed for his comeback special. Such a shame that Phil had, um, less success when he "went electric" than did The Magus...

Is there a link to the song list? Love this series!

Thanks for compiling this playlist. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to finding out the names of artists and songs soon!

Makes me wonder if I should post an episode based on my mix CD of songs inspired by Hitchcock movies, or my ongoing series of mix tapes/CDs of songs about coffee.

Sounds like a plan, Stephen.
