Playlist for 5/6/11: Woo ee ah ah! It's 25 years of Norton Records

Three hours (minus the Local Lunchbox) of nuthin’ but Norton Records in celebration of the label’s 25th anniversary! It was the final day of the pledge drive, but you can still donate at

While you're listening, check out the Q&A I did with Miriam Linna and Billy Miller over at Sonic Diet, WMSE's blog. After that, grab the latest copy of Ugly Things for a 20-plus page feature that will enlighten you on all things Norton.

If you still need more, I did a roundup of a bunch of Nortonrific links the last time I paid tribute to the great label. Yeah, I'll probably do it all again in another few years! Why not?
