Sunday, July 22, 2012 - $3.99 Album Downloads, Lotsa Birthdays, and The Daily Music Poll


A few days ago I wrote a blog entry about pricing album downloads at $4.49, essentially because most people don't know who Saturday's Radio is and a low price for an album download might entice them to take a chance and buy. A low price sealed the deal for me to take a chance on Anne-Marie Klein's "Behind Blue Eyes - Love Reign O'er Me". So, after more discussion between the boys & girls of Saturday's Radio, we've decided to take the price down further, to $3.99 per album download if you buy from our website or CDBaby. How totally awesome is that?

Lots of folks are celebrating birthdays today - Rufus Wainwright, Steve Albini, Emily Saliers, Don Henley, David Spade, Alex Trebek, Willem Dafoe, Albert Brooks, Terrence Stamp, and Danny Glover. Happy Birthday, y'all!

Yesterday's Daily Music Poll asked Wilco fans if they preferred Being There or Summerteeth. Being There was the unanimous choice, 2 to 0. Today's poll sticks with Wilco - Would you recommend Yankee Hotel Foxtrot or A Ghost Is Born? Personally, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is in my all-time greatest albums list. BTW, this Daily Music Poll thing hasn't picked up a lot of speed yet, but every day we get at least a couple of votes. We think that's pretty cool and we are thankful.
