Zero Hour playlist for 6/3/09: C-A-D-I-L-L-A-C

Since we’re all part-owners of General Motors now, I figure I should be getting a Cadillac any day. In recognition of my fine new ride, I played nothing but Cadillac songs for the first hour. There sure have been a hell of a lot of humdingin' songs written about that luxury vehicle. I was happy to see several new local discs in WMSE’s stacks, including Get Up and Run from the Reckless Hearts on Off the Hip and an EP (demo?) from the Sugar Stems.
I Love My Label will feature the legendary Stax Records next week. If there are any Stax/Volt songs you have in mind, just let me know in the comments.
