NPR misspells “chile” throughout article about Hatch, N.M.

By Marisa Demarco [ Mon Aug 1 2011 4:35 PM ]

But NPR is rad, and so is this piece. It taught me many things, including that people down south use Spam in their rellenos. Also, that there’s a law in effect that protects New Mexico’s favorite fruit. The New Mexico Chile Advertising Act was signed in the spring. It prevents jerks who are not in the state from labeling their dumb “chili” as being grown in New Mexico. Jerks.

When the Levee Breaks

Led Zeppelin: Best cover band ever

By Jessica Cassyle Carr [ Mon May 16 2011 3:02 PM ]

Over the horn two weeks ago I was chatting with my Mom, who lives in Louisiana near the Mississippi River delta, about impending floods. They are/were predicted to be more massive than the epic 1927 flood, when her grandfather and others living in the delta had to take boats from town to town. This got me thinking about “When the Levee Breaks” as performed by Led Zeppelinthe band must have taken that song from an American blues artist who wrote the song about the flood. Last weekwhile driving through Mississippi on my way to Natchez, no lessI recalled this thought when Led Zeppelin’s song came on the radio. With a little iPhone research, I discovered that sure enough, the original song, which lies in the public domain, was written by husband and wife Kansas Joe Slim and Memphis Minnie in 1929. Led Zeppelin has a copyright on its version. At right you can play the original song. See if you think Led Zeppelin should take credit for it. Also embedded is a video exhibiting other examples of the band’s covers.
