Three cheers for Busy Blowing Nothing! Tune in next week for two more exquisite hours of hot air. Speaking of hot, tomorrow morning's Give the Drummer Some (9-noon, ET, here on the Drummer Stream) will be a the perfect radio blast-furnace for these frigid times. Unless of course if it's tropical and balmy where you are. Then you're in for a minty cool treat.

Speaking of minty, the following fine artists have all brushed and flossed in advance of blowing you a few notes, next on your 24-hour Give the Drummer Radio:

The Coleman Brothers
Mahotella Queens
Sun Ra
Peregoyo y Su Conjunto
Los Destellos
Os Originais
Shirley Collins
Alvarious B
Hank Thompson
Ray Smith
Buddy Sharpe
The Pebbles
and more
and more
and eternally more...
