LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

A re you MP3 informed? If not, Nashville Scene's James Hanback will get you started with his "Surfing Safari." If you are one of those folks that gets caught up in the radio while driving, Newcity Chicago's Mitch Myers can sympathize--to the tune of a speeding ticket. Meanwhile, Michael Ventura takes a little different road trip to the music of the Southwest in "Letters at 3AM."

Artist profiles this week include: The Lincoln Center Jazz Band, Will Owsley, and Daniel Johnson.
